Yesterday Josie passed her hearing test with no problems. She hears just fine and there was no trace of fluid in her ears. The doctor believes that when her hearing tests took place she likely had a cold and fluid in her ears thus the test wasn't accurate. He thinks that every time Josie gets a cold it probably settles in her sinuses (I agree) and she just won't hear as well during those times.
He said not to worry about random ear infections either, which is happy news. Her patches on her eardrums from the removal of her tubes last May healed nicely, and there's no need for us to go back.
Soooooo nice! A worry lifted, one less doctor to see, and it's good to know Josie is hearing us!
On a side note, Marie was so much fun yesterday. I did wind up going into Wal-Mart with Luke and Josie, but I put Marie in her sling (it's a Peanut Shell) and we walked through. We picked up diapers and were checking out the baby clothes. They had a little t-shirt and leggings outfit hung right at Marie's eye level and she reached out with her hand to touch the flowers on the t-shirt. She was so excited, and was able to reach with her hand and actually make contact with what she was aiming for. She seemed to like the pink and red combo better than the green and blue. It was so much fun to see her excited about something though! She does interact with the world, she does notice things, and when she wanted to she reached right for it.
I am so amazed and humbled by this child that I honestly believed would be in Heaven by now at this time last year. She is something else. My Marie... I absolutely adore her. God is so GOOD!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Father for the blessing of this child. She has taught me so much. And thank you for the gift of your Child, that we may have eternal life in Him.
Am I a lucky girl or what?!
Another side note, we did not buy that t-shirt outfit yesterday. We will though, Marie must get what she wants. Those of you who know us, you know that I might spoil my girls a little bit.... just a little.
