Rylie had her follow-up with the ENT today. We only had to wait two hours to see the doctor, and then only a half an hour to get the hearing test. When we walked into the office it looked like Parents Visiting Day At Daycare. I can't even tell you how many people must have had a 4:00 appointment like myself. The thermostat in the office read 79 degrees. I can't even begin to tell you how HOT it was. I thought I was going to melt. Two and a half hours in a doctors office chasing after Rylie is enough to make me sweat, but go ahead and have the thermostat set at 79 degrees in room with a zillion people, and Oh boy, I was not happy. It is only 10 degrees outside, but when I left the doctors office , I felt no need for my coat. I can't even tell you how wonderful that 10 degrees felt.
Okay, back to the appointment. Well the ENT said everything looks good with her tubes.
She passed her
behavioral audiometrytest. This is where the child goes into the booth and turns towards sounds. She did great! However, they also did an
OEA< test, and that she failed. This is the test where they put the microphones in the ears, like the test they do on newborns. The ENT said he didn't know why she failed. He said since she passed the first test, that would mean she is hearing fine. He said he is not concerned at all, and for her to come back in 6 months. I think she is hearing great. I'm just confused about this OEA test. She used to always pass the OEA test , but fail the booth test. Now it's the opposite.
I hate when the doctor says, I'm not concerned, we can check it later. Of course your not concerned, It's not your child! I'm kidding, but it is frustrating. I'm not crazy about this doctor, because he talks to fast and always makes me feel stupid when I ask questions. Anyway, I know she is hearing good, I'm just confused.
By the way, blogger is driving me crazy, the spell check doesn't work, I can't link anything, and now my text turned blue. WTH ! I'm too tired to fix this.
Oh wait, click on any of the blue and you can learn all about hearing test. GRRR!
