Norah has moved along so well with her new ear that she got her right ear put back on today. And we will test in the booth with both ears next month.
As you can see she has almost every letter sound for speech in her range for hearing now.
I need to have my hearing tested now because I could not hear the sounds when they were produced below 20 DB. Remember a whisper is at (30 DB). I was straining as hard as I could to hear the sounds that were being made in the booth with Norah but couldn’t. She would drop a toy on que everytime the audiologist made the sound from behind the one way mirror.
Norah was hearing so low (15 DB) that the audiologist would try to trick her a couple of times but no, Norah would only drop the toy if she heard the sound. The lady inside the hearing booth with us stopped being able to hear the sounds too so I wasn’t the only one.
So that is right my daughter who is deaf now hears better than me!
Some of you know that Lori is a secret artist; she drew this upside down on the porch with Norah the other night with chalk. Pretty good I would say.
Norah has to help mow the grass.
And one more final bit of good news is that Boo graduated yesterday! Such Good news all around. We are VERY proud of him.
