huh? No she can hear, it's her father who is Deaf (not that it would matter if she was hearing or deaf). She does have fluid in her ear but that will get better. The fluid in her ear is what made her fail her hearing test and have to go back for an ABR test. I think partly it was because they assume just because her dad is deaf that she will be as well, which was annoying.
Is he having an ABR test done as well'? It's a very draining test on child and parents and can be a bit scary. They stick electrodes things all over their head
(we were enrolled in SSI when she was in the nicu because she's considered a micropreemie from her weight and the state considers her disabled because of that. But we were denied when she came home because we have 2 cars, which we need for work and appointments.)
