Today Payton had an appointment with Dr. Bahadori, an ENT that sees a lot of kids with Down syndrome. The reason we went to see him is because kids with Down syndrome have smaller ear canals and nasal passages than a "typical" child. As such, the pediatrician cannot see in Payton's ears very well.
The ENT said Payton's ear canals are a little bigger than what he is used to seeing in kids with Down syndrome, but they are still small. She had no fluid built up or infection, so that was good.
We will continue to see the ENT every 3 months.
