You'll remember it's not been too long since Whitney was last in for tubes to allow her ears to drain. On that occasion the ENT specialist also removed Whitney's adenoids. Having your adenoids out usually helps your ears and sinuses to drain. Unfortunately, it hasn't done much to help Whit. In fact, her ENT says that removing her adenoids has really only had one affect. It's made Whit's tonsil situation worse. They're enlarged and painful and need to come out.
So early next month we'll head back to our trusty friend, the local children's hospital and have Whitney's tonsils removed. The ENT will also place a pair of permanent tubes in Whitney's ears to give them a better chance of draining. The hope is that this will finally allow Whit to be healthier and hear better. Anything to improve my little lady's health.
