More good news

Raegan has made so much progress in the last few months, that she gets to take a break from physical therapy for a few months. We are hoping that this break will give Raegan time to figure things out on her own, and let her sharpen the skills that she all ready has. She is crawling, pulling up, and walking around the coffee table. It took 7 months of physical therapy to get this far, but it has all been worth it. I always wondered when we would get to the point when we had to move the dogs water and food bowl! Amy had said that she would work with Raegan until she was mobile, I told Amy that it might be a while. Thank you Amy for sticking with Raegan and helping us get this far.

Hearing Test part 2

So Raegans hearing is fine, the only issue is the in her right ear the sound is delayed by a few seconds. We will continue to follow up with the doctor to make sure things are fine.

Hearing Test

Today is a big day, I am taking Raegan up to Doernbecher fora special hearing test. Raegan will be sedated and then they will do an Auditory brainstem response (ABR) test. For this test, tiny earphones are placed in the ear canals and small electrodes (which look like small stickers) are placed behind the ears and on the forehead. Usually, click-type sounds are introduced through the earphones, and the electrodes measure the hearing nerve's response to the sounds. A computer averages these responses and displays waveforms.With these test results they can see how much hearing loss Raegan has. This will help us to determine if she needs speech theraphy, or made hearing aids. I will let everyone know how it goes when we get home tonight.
