The latest on the little one. She's found her own growth pattern so we are able to back off on the visits to the pediatrician and plastic surgeon. This is a good thing because going to one or the other every week was getting to be a bit much.
She had her second hearing test last week. Failed it. Which at this point means nothing. Due to the cleft palate, she pretty much lacks the ability to remove fluid from her ears on her own. The basic newborn hearing screenings require that there is no fluid in the baby's ears for the test to work. She has fluid in her ears fairly regularly so she failed the tests. This means that there is no way to get an accurate hearing test done until the fluid is removed. The audiologist recommends putting tubes in her ears before another hearing test is performed. Both the tubes and the next level of hearing tests require sedation No one likes to put little babies under anesthesia unnecessarily so nothing will happen until her next surgery. Hopefully tubes can be put in at that point. But we have no clue on what will really happen. It's all a waiting game at this point.
So we are plugging along. And, nope, I don't have more info than that right now.
