We've finally found a music therapist for Wade. Music is one of his great loves and, therefore, provides a perfect opportunity for teaching. Right now we are hosting a Kindermusik class at our house every week with some little friends, and then will continue on over the summer with one-on-one music therapy. Wade is absolutely delighted.
Wade had day surgery again in March to have the tubes replaced in both ears after fighting with congestion and fluid all winter. It didn't take long after surgery for me to tell a big difference in his ability to reproduce sounds accurately. We've been told that hearing through fluid on your ears is like hearing underwater.
Somehow, I don't think our other boys would have been so utterly happy with this much ear trouble. Wade's pleasant disposition can make it difficult for me to tell if something is wrong with him or not.
I often wonder how much people would be willing to pay for the gift of being so radiantly happy almost all the time!
