"Ear ye Ear ye..."

My oldest son just had another surgery on his ear. This time it was supposed to be a simple prosthesis surgery, lasting about 30-45 minutes. Two and a half hours later, the Dr. comes out to tell us he had a regrowth of his Cholestiatoma (SP?), and he had to remove it along with the accompanying infection. But the surgery went well, he had his stitches removed today, and everything is going according to plan. He still has some gel packing around the ear drum and prosthesis, but he can already hear out of that ear. We thank all who gave support for him during this surgery.

Take care. Stick.

Thanks for the update. I've been wondering about him. Heard a little from Twist Tales and Inside Stories, but glad to get the whole version from you.

Well, I've been totally out of the loop, so I didn't know he was even having surgery! Hmm.....could this be from missing family chat so many weeks?

I'm glad all went well and think this surgery will be a blessing to him. He has been through a lot, and so have you and your wife!
