My 4yo DD is going deaf. We are in the begining stages of diagnoses and I feel overwhelmed. 

I do not see this as a tradgety but I am saddened for the things that she will now miss. The sound of our voices. Me singing lullabyes. Her brothers laugh. The moos of our cows. 

I am just sad

 no chance she can use a hearing aid?

I dnt know about every ones situations but in my case I wont be able to use one once I lose my hearing completly eventually. I cant hear in my left ear now but I still have my right ear. mine is due to the same of my ear drum and trauma .

Hopefully there is options for her , my cusin was able to have surgry to restore her s most the way atleast.

Hopefully she will be able to use a hearing aid and have some relief. I know that on the scale of things that can happen to my child going deaf is very low on the terrible level, I just wasn't prepared.

My DH is moderately hearing impared and so we thought that this might be an issue at birth. DD passed her initial hearing test and so we thought things were fine. 

Over the last 2 months we noticed signs of hearing loss. It is just happening so quickly. I feel the need to talk as much as I can so that she doesnt forget the sound of my voice. 

I want her to hear how much I love her.

I raised a granddaughter with nerve deafness. We first noticed when she was 3, and at that time she was completely deaf in left ear, and had normal hearing in right. By the time she started kindergarten, she had lost 50% of the right ear. It is sad, but we never treated her like she was handicapped. The school was wonderful, and the newer hearing aids are so much better than what she had back then. I'm sending you a friend request, feel free to message me anytime.hugs

 Hi.  Is there any possible way of having laser surgery? Or maybe being able to have transplant from a donor?

She does not have nerve damage, she is missing part of her cochlea so surgery is not an option nor is any type of donor. Hopefully with hearing aids and prayers she will have a pretty average life
