Hearing Test Update
Results of the 3rd hearing test are in. Charlie does have the ability to hear. She just will not have full functional hearing as long as her palette is open (it is seriously a huge hole folks). Tubes will be put in during her second surgery which should help alleviate some of the hearing loss she is currently dealing with. A 4th test will be done then to assess if there has been any permanent damage from the near constant presence of fluid in her ears due to the palette issues. So in a nut shell: she is fine. Perhaps she might have minor hearing issues but we can't assess that until after her palette has been repaired.
