This blog post was started Thursday (9/16), but was not able to finish it until today (9/20). There is just not enough time in the day...
The girls saw a new ENT (ears, nose and throat) doctor Thursday 9/16. Their previous ENT doctor wanted to just wait for Haley's ear canals to grow and didn't really check Rachel's ears. Rachel's main problem is her vocal cords, but now that they are both moving that is a great thing. I decided to get a second opinion and we really like our new ENT doctor (Dr. Albright). He was so nice and wants to try to get ear tubes into Haley's ears despite her small ear canals. He also checked Rachel's ears and found that she has fluid behind her ear drums and also needs tubes. It appears the fluid is affecting her hearing so its good that she will be getting them. I'm so glad we went to Dr. Albright and that he found this with Rachel. So both girls are getting ear tubes on September 28. They luckily won't have to stay in the hospital after getting the tubes. It will be a day surgery/procedure.
So thanks to the advise from readers regarding attaching Haley's glasses to her helmet, I was able to get them to stay on fairly well with Velcro. It has been working and Haley has not been taking her glasses off or touching her eyes.

Haley loves to stand. One day she is going to just walk away.
