momsuz123 Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 So my dd who is struggling, is on her third set of tubes. Just got these in last February. Problem with her is that she has had chronic ear infections forever (started at 10 weeks). Whenever she is sick, she says nothing. She does not even get fevers with her ear infections for little warnings for me. When she got her last set of tubes in, she woke up in recovery and exclaimed, "I can hear people talking!". My heart sank. She had missed most of her kindy year not hearing, or not hearing well. I finally feel like I am making some progress with her, however slowly. She is starting with a SLP in our house (yeah!) next week, I think. She is also meeting with a reading specialist this week (best friend's stepmom), to give us some guidance, etc. And now this. I have talked with her about how important it is to tell me if she isn't hearing well or in pain. She just looked blank. Even her new reading specialist said it is crucial we stay on top of her ears and get them checked more often (we were told to go every 4 months, now she wants it much sooner and more frequently). She said that dd is a child who has missed out on the hearing world for too long, only hearing muffled sounds, so she needs to make up that lost time. Don't know if you have any advice - maybe just a vent was needed. If you do have some, I am all ears. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
