Well, it's official now...Dr. Daniels and his team discussed Ellie's case, and they agree that Ellie will be a good candidate for cochlear implants. We went for her pre-op appointment this morning. Dr. Daniels said that her ears look good--ready for surgery. However, he has a flight scheduled for Feb. 10 at 3:30 pm. It would be a tight squeeze, doing surgery from 8:30 am - 1:30 pm (if everything goes perfectly), and then trying to catch a 3:30 flight. So we both agreed that it would be better to try for another day. I wouldn't want him to feel rushed...and then if something went wrong, I would want him to be in town to take care of it. So, our new date for implants is Feb. 24. Disappointing, but less stressful for everybody!
We celebrated Ellie's 1st birthday on Sunday. Here are some pics...
Ellie didn't like her cake....she just threw it at Opa.
Lots of helpers to blow out the candle!
Birthday cakes....my first experience with fondant.
