3rd and Final

Yesterday, Allison had what we hope will be her final surgery. This time it was her right ear. Once again the doctor cleaned out the cholesteotoma and removed her ear drum( which was paper thin and not really doing her any good, due to her hearing loss).
She was in surgery about 2 1/2 hours, not nearly as long as the surgery on her left ear( 3 1/3 hours). Her doctor said she did great. After about 1 hour in recovery we were able to see her. Allison was in some pain, but was given some pain medicine and was able to get up and go to the bathroom. We were able to leave around 12:45 and home by 1:30.
Allison is very cranky, a sure sign that she is not feeling the best, she is usually a really happy girl.
She is happy that everything is done and is now looking forward to our mini vacation in Oct.

Allison, there is an old saying called "third time's the charm". It means that sometimes it takes 3 times for something to work or to be done. I am glad your third time was the charm and the end of your ear surgeries. Hope you feel better by now. Love to see you soon, Aunt Lois
