Listening is hard work

Posted Dec 10 2010 9:17pm
My little dude is tired. This is what he did most of the afternoon.

We had an audiology appointment this morning and Peas was such a trooper. Did soundbooth testing on each ear individually and some speech testing through the speakers with both on at the same time. We were there for almost two hours. It is amazing the difference a year makes--he could barely make it through a test on just one ear at this time last year. (It will get better, Tammy!)

We also discovered what I have been suspecting for almost two months now: Peas desperately needed a new MAP. He was all the way down to 40 dB in the mid frequencies. Yikes--not good considering he had been at around 20-25 dB across all frequencies for a long time.

So some major changes were made and I was left with a very tired, irritable and cranky little boy for the rest of the day who conked out for the night at 6:00PM.

The plan now is to watch him and make sure he is now hearing everything he needs to. We go back in March and then again in May.
