I finally realized that most of Stas' actions and motions are because of his difficulty hearing. I will have to get pictures of all of his different motions. He puts his ear on everything and "does the worm" with his hand. This morning I was blow-drying my hair and he cocked his head back and forth, grabbed the cord, put it to his ear while his hand does a funny motion on the cord, moved up bit by bit until he got to the blow dryer. Once he reached the blow dryer and realized that is where the sound is coming from he hits his ears and is clearly excited. We know he hears a little, but it is a lot of work.
Next Wednesday is the big day for him. He will get PE tubes and I am so excited. Unfortunately if I wanted the PE tubes done quickly I would have to wait on the ABR hearing test to check if he is capable of hearing. All of the audiologists were unavailable. Hopefully we will see a remarkable difference and not bother with the ABR. It needs to be done under sedation. It is the same test they do routinely on newborns. I don't have a problem doing it at a later date if need be....will see.
Did I mention that Stas is so darn cute.
Everyday I think about getting another little one. I can't tell you how many times a day...... It's not that I feel we NEED more kids, I just long to have these little bugs! They are precious. Would anyone else consider getting all of them so I don't put it on my shoulders. I LOVE Down syndrome!!!
Please pray for Stas. His tubes are going to be done on Wednesday, September 8th.
Please pray for Anastasia who we met, is deaf and is absolutely precious. Her family who is coming for her was told that she is being transferred. Please pray that she stays put at the baby house until they come. Their dossier is so close to going!!!! Hang on their Anastasia!!! I love her. Oh, she longs for a mommy and daddy...brothers and sisters...a family. She is not alone.
