In the waiting room, a group of girls were playing with a train track. Ella marched right up to them and said,
Have I mentioned how much I love her? How her exuberance and passion for life brightens dreary January days?
She shucked her coat and joined them. She didn’t seem to notice that they were staring at her incredulously. She wouldn’t care if she knew. Life, to Ella, is too wonderful to give heed to the criticisms of her peers. Life is shiny, brand new every day, and she greets each day with a smile as big as Texas.
Remove her from the fun before she’s ready though and Houston, we have a problem.
Today, we found out that Ella has a significant hearing loss in her right ear. Her hearing is just in the normal range in her left ear. Without going into a lot of details, it’s probably treatable. And this is wonderful news.
It also explains some things.
One more Ella mystery solved.
