Hearing Test

Lily had a follow up hearing test Monday afternoon to check her right ear. The two hearing tests she had while still in the NICU showed hearing loss in that ear. This test confirmed that she had mild to moderate hearing loss, but they're not sure yet what part is actually not working correctly. The eardrum is moving, and that's good, so we'll have to go back again to do another test to see if the bones are working. We only got halfway through the left ear test because she woke up and was wiggling too much, but so far that ear seems to be doing better than the right.

Sunday evening Lily did a good job of turning her head to look side to side at two toys hanging on opposite sides of her play mat and was able to keep her head up straight while on her belly for almost a minute. She has also been able to roll herself over from tummy to back and scoot a little forward when she's on her tummy. She's building up her muscles and knows how to get what she wants!

Thank you all for your continued prayers.

  1. It sounds like she's doing everything my 14-week-old is doing and then some -- my girl isn't rolling over yet -- and we have no reason to be concerned for my daughter's development, as she seems a bit ahead of where her (typical toddler) brother was at the same age. Continued prayers.
