If ya’ll ddn’t follow my instagram postings … and you are following what’s going on with the kids, here is an update for you.
Yesterday they both (Noah and Nathan) had an audiology appointment with their favorite audiologist Becky. Well, things went well. We only had one hiccup - er - bad news moment.
Nathan’s left tube is blocked. Apparently when he had the ear infection in the right ear back in February and he had all that smelly gross liquid coming out of his ear (which means the tube was working, expelling the infection) … apparently ….. he had one in the left ear also. We were only told to put drops in his RIGHT ear - but no one told us that he needed to get the drops in the left ear also - and the ENT made a NOTE in his CHART saying his tube was blocked then. We still don’t have a CLEAR idea on what his hearing loss TRULY is in his left ear because of this.
Boy boys’ hearing tests showed that their hearing is stable (they still have loss, it just hasn’t gotten worse.) … They are the same as last time - pretty much. Nathan’s left ear NEVER seems to be clear enough for a “good” test on it - so it’s worse than his right ear, still, at the moment. Noah hears just fine out of his right ear, and his left ear has significant loss. He doesn’t *like* to wear his hearing aid because he can hear out of his right one.
Anyway - both boys got new ear molds made so that they can be sent out to the company to make new ear pieces for their hearing aids.
Noah - picked out red, orange and black swirled
Nathan - picked out the dark blue, light blue, white w/ blue glitter for the left ear, and the same type of things for the right ear only it’s red, orange and white with red glitter.
We’ll get them in the mail in 1 to 2 weeks and I’ll take pictures of how they turned out! :)
