Today was Connor's follow-up appointment with the audiologist and ENT. In case you don't remember, our last appointment was back in January when they told us he had mild to moderate hearing loss in the low frequency range. (You can see the full story here.) He didn't have any fluid in his ears, but there was a lot of pressure there which prevented him from hearing in that range and the specialists didn't know why.
I went into the doctor's office today thinking about the possibility of my son needing hearing aids for low frequency hearing loss, and I left with nothing but a good report. No fluid. No pressure. Just a busy two-year-old boy with perfect ears and right-on-target speech. (So much so that he doesn't even qualify for speech therapy because he talks and comprehends so much.)
He can hear. He can talk. He understands everything.
Something that we so easily take for granted with our children, but this mama is thanking God for His healing touch and Sovereign Hand today. Because hearing isn't something I take for granted anymore.
