I had wanted to spend an evening stitching on Harvest Witch but I only ended up stitching for about 90 minutes instead. I really am amazed on how fast this one is stitching up. Maybe it just seems like it because I am working on it with Renee. I have to admit I enjoy doing SAL's because I think it is neat to know that someone else is working on the same thing at roughly the same time as I am. :)
This morning we took Mac back to see Dr. B. and find out exactly what is going on with his ear. The swelling has finally gone down enough in his ear for Dr. B to get a good look at what is going on in the inside of his ear. He does have a skin growth in his ear causing all the problems. It is called a Cholesteatoma. This relieved us some but not much since it is going to require surgery to remove it and it has to removed. This of course brings up the question how much hearing loss does Mac have in his left ear now. We were able to get his hearing thoroughly tested today and in his left ear Mac has about 50-60% hearing loss. Which means if he has his left ear to you and you are talking more than likely he can not hear you. The upside to this is the nerve that runs by the ear is still good so surgery to repair the damage done looks like it is a possibility. However that won't be for at least another 6 months to a year after the first surgery.
The irony of all of this is the doctor said this wasn't an emergency so there is no rush on the surgery! Excuse me....hmmm hearing loss I would consider that an emergency! We are scheduled to see the surgeon next Monday and we will see where it goes from there.
After being gone all morning I like coming home and seeing this......
and not everything all chewed up! Gracie sure has a good big sister who keeps her out of trouble:)
