Good luck with the hearing test!

Max never completed any of his. I think tecnically the Pedi still wants us to get it done, but I really think we waited too long. They have to sleep through the test, and at this age Max is way too excited to sleep when he is in a new location. And we are against sedating him. Anyway, we did a booth hearing test and we know he can hear fine. I guess it is just the formality of having the newborn screening cleared. All of these tests can drive a mom nuts!

Anyway, I hope the test goes smooth and Ethan sleeps through it like a charm!

Thanks :) He did sleep through the test the 4 times they have given it to him and he has failed all four times :( They couldnt find fluid in his hears or any other "cause" for him failing it so thats why hes having the more in depth test. I am pretty worried that he might really have some hearing loss...
