And there was sound!
Stas had surgery today to have PE tubes put in. We had an early trip to the hospital and he was so pleasant about it.
He had tubes and circ and it all went well. Great doctors. We were unable to get the ABR test done for the hearing but we will wait and see if he needs anything else to be sedated for and do it at that time. The circ isn't bothering him a bit....yay!
Here he is at almost 6pm and we are doing all sorts of "tests" (very official of course!) and he sure hears better. Unfortunately we won't know for a while just how he hears until he starts copying sounds or saying something other than "mama" and "baba." When I rub my fingers together behind his head he turns to see what it is. And, that is with all sorts of dried blood filling his canal. Sounds good huh?? Time will tell but I am somewhat optimistic. Unfortunately, when fluid is there for so long it causes anatomical problems from the prolonged pressure...we will see if that is the case with Stas.
Oh, did I mention that I love him...and I would like 100 more of him? Please pray for hearing...it's an extra challenge to learn without it.
