Her First Ear Surgery

We have to be at Children’s hospital at 6:00 AM for her surgery so I’m assuming we’re near the front of the line. They will attempt to make her an ear canal on her left ear and also construct an ear drum. They will also insert a screw into the hearing bone just behind her left ear called a BAHA screw. This is for a bone anchored hearing aid and will only be necessary if her canal does not stay open. They will address her right ear at a later date. One of us will stay with her in Children’s hospital overnight and come home Friday.


Please pray the surgery will be successful and she will have as little pain as possible.


Thanks so much!

Rob and Laine,

You are probably through surgery by now but I will stop what I am doing and pray for Candace. I'm praying that her time in the hospital will strenghten her relationship with her parent's and that her recovery will be smooth and quick.

Already heard from Shalita that everything went well but that they were unable to do much until the infection clears up. Praying that they are able to get that cleared up and fixed up asap! Glad you are all back at home and recovering quickly! Blessings,

Well, how'd it go? I can't believe Mom went to y'all's house today, sent us an email, and didn't even mention how Candace was doing! When will you know if it was successful?
