Who knew a hearing test could take 2 hours? The doctor was amazed by her determination and strength to fight sedation. She said that Bella required as much as she, a grown adult woman, would have required. It’s a strange feeling – but I’m always so proud of her for fighting. I know that is crazy, but she is a fighter. She is strong. It has saved her life a couple of times.
The results – borderline normal on the right and mild hearing loss on the left. Alright. We will come back to clinic in three months to follow up.
Her eyes (nystagmus) – they scheduled the MRI for today at 5:30, but it also requires sedation and they do not, by policy, sedate a child twice in one day. So we are going tomorrow morning.
I am learning more and more about our follow-up care. It is going to be intense! Sounds like we might be down here once a week. Big sigh. There is going to be some serious coordination involved with these next few months.
