Ear Cyst
Alayna McQuay

Alayna's Story
By alayna McQuay

When I was in second grade I had a really bad ear infection. We went to the doctor and he immediately sent us to Children's Hospital. It was an ear cyst. My mother and I stayed at a hotel right beside the hospital. The next morning I had to go in for surgery, of, course I was scared, but I had to do it. Once it was all over, back at home, I had to go for another yearly checkup at my doctor and once again he told us to go back to Children's Hospital. They had told us that the cyst had grown back. I had to go threw it all over again. Now I am a 12 year old healthy teen. I have been cyst free for about 3 years.

I really like Children’s. They will forever have a place in my heart.
