Goodbye Decibels.....We'll Miss You
Today when I picked Trey up from school, I ran into his Audiologist (who we LOVE). She mentioned that she had just finished adjusting Trey's hearing aid, and unfortunately it appears that his hearing in his aided ear, has taken another hit. But (and this is the *real* bummer), only in the higher frequencies. His 250 and 500 have actually improved a bit. So, he still doesn't qualify for a second implant, but his hearing is really pretty horrible. Kim (Audi.) was able to crank it up, and managed to get rid of the feedback (thank goodness- it was really squealing when I first put it on him). I just hope if he continues to tank in the higher frequencies that his low and mid-range frequencies adjust downward as well. I had a sneaking suspicion this was the case as he just didn't seem to be hearing well while playing in the water this weekend (without equipment on). But who needs a few decibals when they have a cool red sports car-LOL!
