Bella was administered some kind of antibiotic in the nicu that the audiologist warned me to be aware of because it can cause deafness. She passed her hearing test when she was discharged 3 weeks after her birth, but they told me to have her hearing tested again at 1 yr.

Catalina failed hers the first time, and passed later.(a few days)
My friend's daughter who was 1 pound 8oz., 27 weeker, has some moderate hearing loss that is corrected with aides. She suffered a bleed as well(cp). she was in the nicu for 3 months.

I pray that if her loss was so minor that little ethan's will be fine.
Your family is in my prayers and you guys are not alone!
