Things are going well for us, for the most part. However, for the past few weeks we have been concerned that Nathaniel isn't able to hear. We did several very non-scientific tests at home, all to no avail. Yesterday I took him to have an actual hearing screen done and it looks like we were right. He did not respond to any of the tests nor did they detect any movement in his ear canals from his ear drums, etc. They were reluctant to give us a definitive diagnosis until we have one last in depth test done. We're waiting to hear from our pediatrician to get this scheduled. It will be done at the hospital, hopefully sometime in the next couple of weeks.
Of course Brent and I are sad at the thought of Nate being deaf. But, once again, we are reminded of how blessed we are to live where we do. Rochester has an amazing deaf community and there are so many resources available to us here. We even have an ASL interpreter in church every week. There are awesome schools and we know that it will all work out.
We'll know more after the next test. I'll keep you posted. And of course, it doesn't hurt to pray for a miracle. :)
