Hearing Test / ENT Appointment - Results

Rachel was extremely cooperative for her hearing test. The audiologist did a tympanogram, where the mobility of the ear drum is tested. Unfortunately, her ears had fluid and the mobility wasn't good. The audiologist was pretty positive that Dr Rowe would recommend placing tubes in her ears again.

Dr. Rowe checked out her ears and said there was minimal fluid, and since she's not having any ear infections, or showing any signs of hearing loss, or extreme problems with her speech improving, then we'll wait on the tubes and retest in two months and make a decision then. If her ears aren't improved, then we'll do tubes. But for now, we'll just wait and see.

I'm glad she was so cooperative!Hopefully she will not have to have the tubes again and yet another surgery.

We had a re-eval with Abby's ND today, and she told us to get a tympanogram done on her in the near future.
