Yesterday, Logan and I went to see the Pediatric ENT at Children's Hospital.
As far as his hearing...they repeated the test he had last week with the same result, a fail. So, we were put on the day surgery schedule for a sedated auditory brain response test. They told me that due to is DS and his breathing issues he would need to be put out for the two hour test. At least this is the last test they can do, it will give us all of the answers we need. BUT, the soonest we can get in for this test is the middle of April!! I even asked if we could do it closer to home at a different hospital and they said no. We are on a cancellation list, so I am crossing my figures that they well call with an opening soon.
As far as his breathing...the doctor said that Logan sitting up to sleep sounded like it was working well for him, so we will look for a different sleep solution when he can no longer sit in the car seat. And as for his cough. He said it sounds barky because of Logan's narrow airway and is probably caused by extra saliva or drainage, but if he starts coughing more than only intermittently during the day and at night, we have to have his airway looked at. I guess they would send a camera down his throat to take a look. He could have one of many possible structural abnormalities in his airway. He named a bunch, but they all had weird names.
Good news...the hearing test they did perform showed that Logan is most likely hearing at some pitches, and it is possible that the test didn't detect reaction to the other pitches because of the tubes in his ears. So the doctor said there is a chance that he is hearing well.
This duck for the tub is working great for bath time! I was getting frustrated because Logan is too big for an infant tub, but can't sit up in the regular tub. I thought he might slip around in the duck, but the bottom is grippy so he can sit and lean against the tail (or it also makes a great head rest!)
