Little Matthew is doing just fine.
We had a slight scare in the beginning. We were seriously concerned about his hearing. The dogs would bark and he wouldn’t flinch or acknowledge any loud sounds. Though at times we clearly felt like he heard us or something. It was never consistant. Of course the Internet scares the hell out of you when you read that parents of children who did turn out to be deaf when through very similar experiences.
At our first opportunity we took him to Childrens for a hearing test. The tests did confirm that his hearing was in fact impaired but also that it was, or appeared fluid based. The mechanics of his hearing were fine.
We were told to follow up with our ENT Dr. and return in 6-8 weeks and repeat the tests.
We’ve been to our Family Dr. and since then things must have opened up for him.
We’re very blessed.
There are more photos in the gallery, though they are lumped in with the previous photos.
