Finally some GOOD news

Nathan had a hearing test this morning. Up until now, we had been told that Nathan could not hear well out of his left ear. The severity of the hearing loss was not known. We've been back for several test and we always had a difficult time getting the testing done. Today they put little tubes in his ears  to do the test ( They hadn't used them before and I'm not sure why) and although Nathan didn't like them they did the job, each time they fell out they were caked with ear wax. Nathan has unusually small ear canals and with the amount of wax build up in his ears it may have been enough to cause him to have some hearing difficulties.
The results from todays test confirm that he has normal hearing in both right and left ears. It's the first time we've come out of an appointment with good news! Yeah! Today is a good day!


  1. It is wonderful to get GOOD news when one is visiting a doctor or specialist. YAY I am thrilled his hearing is normal.

  2. That is great. I love good news for once. Noah just had his hearing checked and I was so nervous but turned out normal too. Hugs, Kristi
