To Keep Me Humble
A while back I got a letter from Joy's ENT. It was time for her next hearing test. Honestly, I thought, "What a waste of time." Fast forward to today when we actually had that hearing test.
Her left ear was normal - good. Her right ear - flat line. Repeat test. Several times. Try different types of tests. Sigh deeply and be grateful that we kept the appointment.
The ENT says that she has an ear infection - which she did not have when we went to her pedi right before Christmas. She has given me no signs that her ear hurt or anything. We'll treat the infection and go back in two weeks. She also wants a sedated ABR. I don't know. If the meds clear up the ear infection and her repeat hearing test comes back normally, I'd rather not put her under.
Anyway, grateful I called and made that appointment - and for the record - it was not a waste of time.
