ENT nurse 12:38pm April 17th

A nurse practitioner for the ENT stopped in to take a look in Owen's ears, nose, and throat.  The doctor is at a different location so he wont be able to scope Owen today, but he wants to tomorrow.  The nurse said that everything looks good, the only thing she noted is that he is slightly tongue tied, which means the tissue that connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth extends further towards the tip of the tongue than normal.  Being tongue tied can affect breast feeding and speech development, so the nurse is going to inform the doctor and then he will decide if he wants to do anything about it yet or not.  Other than that Owen is looking good.
