Now that Alayna is signing and making the sounds for many animals I could tell that she really enjoyed seeing all these farm animals.
She loved petting the calves and watching Aidan feed the goats but, her favorite animal was the chickens. She giggled as she watched them scratch and chase each other around and was saying bak, bak, bak.
Here is a little clip of her at the end of our visit (her bak, baks weren't as clear as they were early on.)
This morning Alayna had her ENT appointment to follow up on her flat tympanograms from the ds clinic in April and follow ups with our pediatrician and another audiologist in May.
Thankfully her eardrums looked clear, although the doctor had to clean some wax out of both ears. Her hearing registered today in the normal ranges but her tympanograms were still more flat than the doctor would like.
We have a follow up appointment with her in 6 weeks to recheck the movement of Alayna's eardrums and hearing. If it still isn't perfect Alayna will then be scheduled for tubes.
My only new bit of information from today's visit was that Alayna's tonsils were huge. The doctor wasn't concerned and wasn't suggesting a tonsillectomy or anything drastic right now but we will definitely be keeping an eye on them to make sure they aren't impacting her breathing etc.
