3 Check Ups

Today was a busy day at St. Louis Children's Hospital. It started in the Ds clinic where Soph weighed in at 21 and a third pounds, her height is 29 and a third inches, and head circumference is 44.3 cm. Generally, this is in the 75 percentile on the Ds scale. Also, Soph does not have 2 teeth coming in, she has 4!

Then we visited an ENT and Audiologist. Her tympanogram was flat in both ears. "No pressure peak for either ear suggestive of middle ear problems" (or little ear canals that didn't test properly). The hearing test results, " responses to speech and tonal/noise band stimuli suggest essentially normal hearing for at least one ear - with exception of responses seen at a mild loss level at 500hz and speech awareness." The vibrating bone conductor behind her right ear did not induce a response. Translation, she hears pretty good. Come back in a few months for repeat testing to figure this out a bit more.

Last was an appointment with opthomology. It was a follow up appointment from her Strabismus surgery in May. Her eyes look great and are level. Her vision is good with slight astigmatism in both eyes. Come back in a year.

Not a bad day all things considered. Our friends RK and Braska came over for the afternoon and were great company. I got to see Braska sign 'all done' and say book and shoe. RK is gorgeous, as usual. She always looks so nice and there I was in my schlumpadinka pj pants. But hey, at least I showered today.

Sounds like a busy day! I forget, does she have tubes? Delphine always had trouble with the tympanogram - but once she got her tubes, she got great readings.


I'm so jealous you got to hang out with RK and Braska - your two girlies are so cute!

You are too kind, girlfriend. We enjoyed it, and it turned out well since we had to pop in for an unexpected visit to GI too! :o)

Thanks! Nope, she doesn't have tubes. She's not had any ear problems so far, thank goodness.
