Can You Hear Me Now?

We say Isaiah can "hear you now", but there are a few people who think maybe he can't hear you.

We've witnessed Isaiah turn his eyes towards us when we talk, calm down when we sing, and startle at loud noises but it seems he didn't pass his hearing test today.

They did a number of tests, but he didn't pass any of them.  They even checked his inner ears; there's evidence that he may have fluid in there so that could be the culprit...

So after we initially panicked, we got ourselves together and agreed that's it's just one day of tests.  If he has fluid in his ears, which is common after a c-section (plus 1 out of every 10 babies fails the initial screening), it should go away and he should hopefully pass when he's a little older.  Prayers for that are appreciated!  
Holy pile of cords, Batman.

So we'll be stopping back to Dupont in 2-3 weeks for an appointment to get this rechecked (we're hoping to coordinate that with a PAM treatment.  Really, I think they are just falling in love with him and are trying to find reasons for him to stop back and visit.

I can't blame them. Who can resist this face?

No one. That's for sure.

  1. He is such an adorable little peanut! Don't sweat about the hearing, at least not now anyway. Rozzie & Chandler both failed on their first few tests. It was only when I took them to a audiologist weeks after they were born to have another hearing test where they passed with flying colors. The culprit? You guessed it - fluid. :)

    High hopes for Isaiah!!
