We've talked about a possible nose surgery for Mia and tomorrow we go to LA and get a second opinion from another ear, nose, throat doctor. The thought is that there is some possible scar tissue build up from her first surgery to unblock her right nostril, but no one can definitely say at the moment. Her ear, nose, throat doctor couldn't really tell when she looked up her nose, and so she said rather than having another CT scan done where Mia would have to be put under general anesthesia, why not just put her under and look at her nose and do the actual surgery. And I like that reasoning because we don't want her to have more CT scans if she doesn't need them, there is just so much radiation in them, but we also don't want her to go under general anesthesia if she doesn't need it either. So, that's why we are seeing another doctor to get a second opinion, maybe he will see things more clearly when he looks in her nose. So, pray for our trip tomorrow, pray for wise discernment from the second opinion. We'll let you know what happens.
