At this point we are getting really nervous. Nervous that Drew won't be able to have surgery on June 6th because of an ear infection. We are also getting really nervous about possible complications with the surgery. Drew's Dad is really worried about complications that would cause facial paralysis and severing the taste nerve. All are extremely rare, but none the less, worrisome.
We have full confidence in Dr. Kang - he is a very experienced and talented surgeon and is the chief of the department at Children's. We trust him fully, but we are Drew's parents so we worry about every detail. We are trying to make the best decisions for Drew and ultimately surgery is a necessary evil to allow Drew to hear. We'll be a lot better once June 7th is here.
