Pray for Chloe

We found out yesterday there is a possibility that Chloe has hearing loss. Last week she went for a well-baby check-up and there was lots of fluid behind both of her ear drums, so her pediatrician did a hearing test in the office and she failed it. He sent her to see ENT at Children's to be evaluated for tubes. They placed her in a hearing booth and she was expected to turn her head towards the sound or make facial expressions and she did not. The ENT said he thought there was definately some hearing loss, but was not sure if it is due to the fluid in her ears. They will place tubes on May 27 and do further testing of her otic nerves and the anatomy of her ears and it will also tell the extent of the hearing loss. Hopefully she's not hearing as well as expected just because of the fluid in her ears and the tubes will cure that. Please pray that the tubes are all she needs and she will pass the other testing.

I'll say a prayer for her. Hope her hearing gets better. I love the dance pictures. Christal talked about how cute she was. I'll have to go when Jacey gets more involved. They are having another girl in September, so I'm excited about dance trips, competitions, and lots of girl stuff. Hope all is well with you all. I'm ready to come home. =)!!

Love ya!
