We've been through the ringer for the last 4½yrs with Seamus and all his medical issues. I thought Kieran would be the "easy one", besides her weight issues she's been a 180 from Seamus. But her speech has been behind, and we just had her ENT appt. She has hearing loss like we were afraid of. Its not horrible and the ENT said this kind should be reversible, he said sometimes its not but it should be. Her hearing loss is the result of constant fluid on her ear, her left ear drum didn't really react it basically flatlined, her right had a slight reaction, and she also wasn't hearing near where they wanted.
We're going in on the 17th for tubes, and he will recheck her a few weeks later to see how/if her hearing improves.
Its not a major hearing loss but still a whole different ball park for us. She's picking up on signing pretty well so we're working on that. In the last 1.5mo she's learned more and please and we're working on eat and drink now.

I'm glad to hear you guys caught it - and that she's picking up well with sign! As long as there is no permanent damage to the ear drum, her hearing should bounce right back as soon as she gets tubes in and it's able to drain. I have a friend with an 8 year old who had a fluid-related loss for the first couple years of his life. He still has some pronunciation problems with his speech, but he caught up on vocabulary very quickly! Good luck Justine, and keep us posted on how things go.
