We took B to see the eye doc, Dr. Coats, today. We had to make the trek into the med center so we wouldn't have to wait till Monday to see him out here in Cy Fair. (That was recommended by the nurse). One of her eyes has been very red, and she's been rubbing both alot. Also very uncharacteristically taking her glasses off quite often. The good news was that all is well. While there is some mild irritation, there is no infection. On her right eye the suture is visible, hence the irritation. He said that will go away with time. He did tell us that if it really starts bothering her to let him know and he can possibly call in some medication for her. We really like him, he's a cool guy.
While we were in the CCC building, the ENT office happened to be in the same area as Optho. We stopped by Dr. O's office considering I have not been able to get a return phone call. They were very pleasant and based on the info from B's latest ear trouble, we have scheduled ear surgery for her on June 4. They will be placing tubes to help keep her ears drained. I'm hoping this will rectify the ear infection issue. We shall see!
The speech therapist came today and Brinson is doing better. She is now starting to walk more independently without coaxing, and therefore Cindy says her speech will "quiet down" for about 2 months. Apparently when children are learning major things such as walking and talking, they focus on only one at a time (makes perfect sense to me). She's babbling up a storm, so this will be interesting to see. Also, I'm thinking that the fluid in her ears is affecting her speech and equilibrium. I'm very anxious to see if any of that changes after surgery.
