My gut feeling tells me that since she was never diagnosed with the submucous cleft palate, she's had so much fluid build-up in her ears over the last 7 years, and it has caused permanent damage. I'm only hoping that the her ear drum can get the amplification needed to be able to hear better with a hearing aide. I can only imagine that this would probably help some with her speech also in the long run.

On Saturday December 4, 2010, the PB&J Kid's Choir performed their GPS Program. Both Kaylyn & Ashlyn had solos in the program. They both were so cute. When we download the video to the computer, which requires us purchasing a cable to be able to do so, I will download some footage of their solos. Everyone was so proud of Ashlyn and how far she'd come! She is such a ham with her dancing.
After the show, we went up to Viera to the Avenues and got the girls hair cut at Snip Its. They always love getting their hair cut there. We get it trimmed every few months to keep it growing as healthy as we can. Their hair is getting longer. Plus we are getting our family pictures done tomorrow.

So Ashlyn finally got her two teeth pulled this morning. Gave her some valium this morning, an hour before "surgery". Then we went in, they gassed her with nitrous oxide, which made her think everything was funny until the novacaine shots came. After the numbing was complete, it literally took 2 seconds per tooth to pull out. Then they gave her oxygen to get the nitrous oxide out of her system and she was ready to go. The teeth are still bleeding a little, but nothing too serious. She keeps wanting to eat things she shouldn't be eating and I'm afraid she'll get something stuck in one of the "holes". Both teeth had cavities that the dentist didn't even know about. I'll have to show Dr. Tuttle the next visit so she can start getting x-rays done to see if there are any more.
After awhile, Jason got the Christmas tree out of the attic and we set it up. Then the girls put the ornaments on the tree. They had fun, even through the arguing about whose turn it was. Here's some pictures.
