Molly's 3rd post op appointment

Molly had a great Dr appointment today, even though we had to wait almost 2 hours to see him. 
He removed the last of her ear canal packing and said it looks fantastic.  Next visit is August 18 when they will do the first post op audiogram! Can't wait!

Pool fun

I took Molly, Katie and a couple of friends of theirs to the pool here in our community.  It's finally warm enough to swim in, it's actually quite nice now.  I bought Molly a swim cap just to keep splashes out of her ear.  It worked really well, I could actually enjoy myself while at the pool for the first time since Molly's surgery.

Molly seems to be hearing much more now that most of the packing has been taken out.  Molly was in the bathroom playing with water in the sink while I was in the kitchen talking to Katie and Molly kept saying "What? What?" as if I was talking right next to her.

We went to a local soccer game last night with some friends.  Molly was quite annoyed with the air horns and the vuvuzelas (annoying horns prevalent at soccer games).  I had to teach her how to cover her ear to drown out sound.  She had no concept on how to do it.

2nd post operative appointment complete

Molly and Erin are home from Palo Alto.  They traveled there to see Dr Roberson to take out her packing.  The incision area looks great!
