Happy Birthday NANA!
4 events all AM.
He went immediately back to sleep.
We had his ENT appointment and I was nervous how he would act since he had a bad morning but he was great! Tay was too! I got lucky or the complaining is finally paying off.
Turns out that Bug's left ear is clear now. Bummer, and yet, it explains why he has been responding better and being so verbal. He literally has a more comprehensive look in his eye and he is being coy too. Totally darling. Anyway, his right ear was still fluid filled so Dr. Munz sent him over for another hearing test.
His left ear passed, his right ear ALMOST passed and the eardrum is responding but not properly...so I thought he will advise the tubes. But he didn't. He said: Let's wait ANOTHER 2 months and see if the right one clears up. I wanted to scream and throw things but the only thing I was holding was Bug so THAT was a bad idea.
Instead I said: So at this point we are looking at brain stem processing issue (fighting back tears)?
I just shook my head and said Ok, hugging Bug a little tighter and giving him a kiss on his head.
Dr. Munz was quick to follow up with: "BUT that doesn't mean that he won't be able to just one day start talking. I have patients that are 8 or 9 years old and they just spontaneously start saying things and he has a good chance of that since we can't really find anything wrong."
And there it is.
Can't find anything wrong.
That means that you are looking in the wrong place.
So we wait 2 more months and we enjoy the little Dada's and Mama's and DooDoo's we hear and we encourage it and we pray for that moment when he just says:
So what do you want to talk about? Forest fires or rattlesnakes?
