Lil Keith's Surgery

Lil Keith had his surgery today to patch the holes on his eardrums. He had a large hole on his left eardrum and a small hole on the right eardrum. The doctor removed the Tragus on the left ear to use as the patches for both the left and right eardrum. The surgery went well. He was not a happy camper when he was brought to the recovery room. He was still groggy and in pain. Fortunately he went to sleep on the drive home. Keith went to pick up his antibiotic, ear drops and pain meds at the pharmacy. He has had a good evening. I just hope his recovery is quick and without complications. The doctor said that the smaller hole should be healed within a week but the larger hole will take at least three weeks.

Lots of positive thoughts and prayers would be appreciated.

Sure. My wishes and prayers are on the way. Was this a genetic defect?

Prayers and positive energy sent Lil Keith's way. It can't be much fun, either, to have his summertime fun abbreviated for the necessary surgery and healing.

Thank you bestwriter No this is not a genetic defect. When he was younger he had lots of ear infections so he had tubes put in his ears. The tubes fell out but the holes did not grow back up and the hole in the ear on the left got larger for some reason.

@rebelann1949 he is doing really good. He went back for a check-up and the doctor said that both of his ears look good.
