Surgery went well

Bryson had surgery on July 19th to place tubes in his ears and to cut the lingual frenulum. That is that little ligament under the tongue that allows your tongue to move freely. His was tight...thus tongue tied. Even though he had not had any ear infections, the pressure of fluid behind the eardrum may have caused a slight hearing loss. It is difficult to tell at this point how much, but there will likely be further testing. The surgery on the tongue is a quick little clip and then it is cauterized to stop any bleeding. This will help him with feeding issues and later with speech. He did very well and was very brave. Thank you for those of you who keep him in your prayers. He is a little trooper and is happy and healthy.
