Lily and Alexander seem to be doing fantastic with their respective amplification. They both had sound booth testing last week. Lily responded to speech at 15dB and Alexander responded to speech at 30dB. A whisper is approximately 30dB so we are really happy with the results.
Alexander also had another ABR last week. This is the test they did to confirm his hearing loss. We have continued to do them to monitor his hearing since there is a chance that his hearing loss could be progressive. So far, no change. He still has a mild to moderate hearing loss in both ears. He is "talking" a lot more these days. He squeals, he giggles, he makes open and closed vowel sounds, and he is blowing raspberries.
