Jake is now telling me his hearing is *almost* as good as it was before NH day....

NH (No Hearing) day. I'm a terrible mom and I keep sneaking up behind him to 'check' his hearing. Checking his hearing entails me yelling his name behind his back, seeing if he'll turn around. Right around yell 15, Jake said, "Mom, I can hear you, I just don't want to listen to you yell anymore".....:)

So, I guess we'll know for sure on Tuesday if he is back to where he started. If so, I'd encourage anyone w/ sudden drops in hearing to give steroids a shot (unless they are a health risk for you or your child). For us, it was definitely worth a shot. And, so far, they seem to be working well.

So, maybe, *maybe* implant avoided (for the time-being.)

Hmmm... steroids were never suggested to me when I had a drop in hearing! Oh well, I am quite happy with my implants. Glad to hear you've temporarily avoided yet another CI surgery!

PinkLAM- Steroids were never used on any of the other kids either (somewhat controversial in terms of "do they actually work" and are the side effects worth it? I would say I'm glad we did, but I say that cautiously.
