.. And All's Well That Ends Well

... at least for today.  :oD

We saw Tate's audiologist at Children's today and found that he has...

"no significant loss".

Which is great news.  There was some variation from his last test (March 09) and the last test at Children's (March or April of '08), but all in all, no significant loss.  Not even enough change to reprogram his HA.  His hearing has been basically stable for TWO YEARS.


And the fact that I called yesterday morning and got an appointment for this afternoon?  Well, let me just reconfirm what a God-thing that was by telling you that her next available appointment is June 29th.  Yah.

Tate has been a trooper through all of this.  Frustrated and miserable at times, but not whining or complaining.  Okay, a little complaining about all the pokes and "blood-lettings", but not much.

And with all the tests finished, and Tate seeming back to his normal self, I'm hoping we can put this all behind us and get on with our normal life.

As if we were ever normal.

Thank the Lord that He loves and cares for this bag of mixed nuts I call my family.

That is FANTASTIC news!!!

That is great news to hear. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
Is it to be expected that Tate would loose hearing as the years go by?
Do hope this is the end of the dramas, but as you say, there'll be something else.
Sufficient fo rht day is the evil thereof...

Great news on the hearing front! It was very wise of you to get it checked out- here's to Tate getting back to "normal" (whatever that is) and having all this medical hullabaloo become a distant memory.

What a praise about the hearing test! I was praying yesterday! I'm sure Tate is glad to have this behind him.

God has a plan for that young man. To be "testing" him so young, that can be the only reason!

Okay, a word from Gramma Grasshopper. I am continually amazed at what a trooper Tater is with all that he has gone through - and with an ongoing hearing loss. And Julie's right, he hardly EVER complains....about anything! He brought me to tears yesterday driving down as he and Julie prayed for our trip and HIS prayer was that he would not have lost any more hearing....my prayer as well....continually. I LOVE YOU TATER - AND your brothers!
