Nathan FAILS .....

.
Recently I blogged about Nathan failing his hearing test during his post cleft palate surgery check-up ....  before jumping on any band wagon - they wanted me to keep the hearing test I had already scheduled for him and see how he did for that one.

Well...  he had that one...... and FAILED.

So the option that had been mentioned during the first failed attempt, of doing the test while he was put under on medication was brought up again but Becky (our Audiologist that sees Noah too) but she didn't really feel the need to do it.  She felt he was responding and she got some slightly better results than the last time.  So ........ she said.......

She just wanted to fit him for hearing aids in both ears.

Yep!  That's right!  Again - just more comes ....  every time I feel like they couldn't POSSIBLY diagnosis him with something else.... they do. 

So he got to get ear molds done.... first the little spongy thing needs to go in so they can pull it out...
 Then the pink goo goes in and surprisingly - he didn't freak out .... 
 After Becky filled up his ear she put the rest of it in his hand so he could play with it.
 Nathan got to pick out colors...... he picked out a clear with a pink glitter, the hot (magenta) pink and the light pink....   cuz...... he ....... loves...... pink.....  he got this mix for both ears.
 and he's getting a purple hearing aid.
 then she did the left side...... 
I totally was caught off guard with this - and hadn't brought my camera - so I had taken these with my Mom's cell phone.

Anyway - we're going back to get the hearing aids on November 15th (long wait!) ...  and she's going to do another test then, too - just to make sure.

So .... that's that........
