Jared's appointment

Today I took Jared to the ENT to check on this recent hearing drop. After the doctor poked and picked at Jared's ears, he told us that he was not all that concerned about the recent drop in his hearing. He did have Jared do another booth test, this time with his hearing aides on to see what his voice discrimination was, it was about 77%. The doctor said that he thought what we are seeing may be because of his recent illness.

We will take him back in 6 months for a recheck and we will see what happens.

Wow, 6 months is a long time to wait. Did they readjust his aids?

Yes, they adjusted his aides. I know that if I feel he needs to get in sooner, I can just call and they will squeeze us in.
Please understand that Jared is almost 9 and is very good about telling us if something is not right with his hearing. If he was younger, I would not have agreed to the 6 month time frame.
