- Wedding: September 2012
Earlier this year we found out that my 2 year old neice was loosing her hearing. The doctors didnt know why or what was causing it. A few months ago they told us that she had lost 70% of her hearing.
She started going to a speech therapist and learning sign lauguage.They checked to see if her ear drum was damaged and if they could do tubes or implants but neiter were an option. Her doctor said that there was some procedure (i dont fully understand what it is) that they could do to help her be able to hear.
My sister (her mom) and the rest of the family live in North Carolina. We have been waiting and waiting and waiting to hear when the surgery was going to be scheduled for. And today she found out that it is going to be the day after my wedding. She is going to have to be in the hospital for 4 days. Its a very serious surgery and they dont even know if it will work 100% or at all.
I am sooooo sad that my little neice has to go through all of this. And she was so excited about being the flower girl.
I am full of so many different emotions. I am very concerned about my neice and my sister. I hate that they are having to go through this. I feel selfish because I really wanted them to be at the wedding and my neice to be my flower girl. I am sad that they are not going to be there with me on my day.
Unfortunitly if they reschedule the surgery it wont be able to be done for another 6 months and then it will be winter and she would have a harder time healing with the cold weather.
I feel like we should rescheudle or put things on hold until after her surgery but I know at this point that is not an option. I really am at a loss.
Please keep my neice and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
