Emmerson JacksonMy 21-month-old daughter, Emmerson Jackson, had tubes placed in her ears last Tuesday by Dr. Albert. We cannot say enough good things about our experience.
When our son William was 6 months old, we went to the pediatrician’s office because he was a noisy breather and got congested when he ate. They ordered a cookie swallow test to see how he would handle the liquids he was eating. He failed the test and aspirated on the liquids.
When my son William was 6 months old he was diagnosed with dysphagia. In August of this year, Dr. Albert put tubes in his ears and removed his adenoids. Dr. Albert was hoping that removing the adenoids would help with the dysphagia.
Looking back, Katina and Dionisios Stamos, of Poland, Ohio, worried almost from the start about their daughter’s feeding. Maria wouldn’t take the bottle and, when she did, made sounds like she was choking.
