A Shiney New Wrench
Took Willie for a more advanced hearing test yesterday. The verdict? Moderate bilateral middle ear hearing loss. Dang it! I thought he might have some mild hearing loss in the left ear. I also thought it might be his tiny ear canals. Or wax. Or something. I didn't see this one coming. The very lovely audiologist (seriously, I loved her manner!) said he may hear better than he is able to indicate, but based on his behavioral responses, she's estimating his loss as moderate. Both sides. In the middle. Dang! I did not see this one spinning nor did I hear it's whir, feel it's wind...until it chunked Willie right in the head. I haven't had five minutes to even think about how I feel about it. Eventually I will cry. And then I will get over it. Because Willie will need someone to show him the way. And maybe I'll just cry now. Dang.
