Hearing

Tonight Edison told us that he has not been able to hear out of his left ear since he had an ear infection several weeks ago.  We tested him as best as we could and now we are just waiting to get a doctor’s appointment.  It is a little unnerving to me as I went deaf in my right ear when I was 4 years old because of a disease called cholestiatoma (the spelling may be way off -I was 4 at the time and cat was difficult to spell…) which is a disease where you grow tumors in your ears and if left untreated they will grow into your brain.  I was fortunate that our family doctor noticed something amiss at my kindergarten screening and he sent me to a specialist.  It is extremely rare in children and not hereditary as far as anyone knows — generally men who have been in wars with bombs exploding near their ears get it…This was not the end of my story though – because when I was in college the Lord miraculously healed my ear and I now have excellent hearing out of both of my ears.

Anyway, Edison is a bit worried – we think that is why he didn’t tell us right away.  We would appreciate any prayers that the Lord puts on your hearts…and we’ll keep you posted.

    I’m so upset to hear about Edison’s ear (absolutely no pun intended). Please let us know what the doctor says. Of course you and he will be in our prayers. Lots of them being said here these days, so we’ll add some more for Edison.
