they ended up having to stick little microphones in his ears and measure the movement of the eardrums. The good news is that his hearing is 100% perfectly normal. The "bad" news is that he isn't really making the connection yet that sounds have meaning. She said based on his re-evaluation in 6 months, depending on where he is developmentally, they may want to sedate him and do a brain stem response, checking the auditory nerve to make sure that's okay.

Glad to know he is hearing. Hopefully things will progress for him over the next few months. ABR's are simple but if he doesn't need one, that's better. I hate when they have to be sedated. Keep us posted.

Thanks Yvonne (Jaidynsmum) for my beautiful siggy!

ABRs suck in my opinion, so I agree, definitely better if you can avoid them! I'm glad to hear that he's hearing; that means he's had all this time being able to start making those connections at least, you know? Now you can just work on trying to make sound meaningful. Hugs hon though, I know that's got to be hard to hear!

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!
