We met up with her ENT who checked Rachel's throat and said her tonsils were not large at all. He said that between a 0 and 4 her's are a 2. Which is really good. He also looked in her ears and said that there wasn't any fluid and set up a hearing test for the following week. We go for the test and she did ok with the hearing part but flunked the air pressure test thing. We saw the doctor right after that appointment and sure enough, she had fluid in her ears. Amazing how that happens in a week, no? Soooo, she is now on antibiotics to try and knock out whatever could be causing the fluid build up and she will be seen again in three weeks to check the fluid. If she still has it, then we'll probably need to go ahead and have her get tubes. Rachel's biggest weakness is her speech, or lack thereof, so I want to make sure we are doing everything possible to help her overcome that. Being able to hear clearly is on top of that list.
Speaking of speech, Rachel's new speech therapist came to the house last week. I LOVE her. She is tough. She makes Rachel work, work, work with signs. I was so impressed. Poor Rachel was worn out after she left but I know this woman is going to do great things for her. I can't wait until her next session!
