Bad News....

Chloe had her tubes placed this morning and the testing done on her auditory nerves. The news was not good. The test showed there was at least severe hearing loss in both ears. At this point, there is no explaination as to why she has hearing loss. She will have further testing on her ears and they will also do genetic testing in the next few months. She will have an evaluation at the Hearing Center at Children's next week and be fitted for hearing aids. The good news is that this was diagnosed at an early age and there is a chance her speech won't be affected as badly as if she were diagnosed at a later age. Please pray she responds well to hearing aids or is a candidate for a cochlear implant if needed. If she is a candidate for a cochlear implant, that will be done when she is just over a year old.
