Well-behaved women

rarely make history.

Joss doesn't have a hearing problem.

(Although I could have told you that!)

We had her hearing tested today, apparently it's a prerequisite to a speech test. We wanted a speech test all along, but whatever.

It was interesting. I had to hold Joss's head still while the nurse put a thing in her ear to test the nerves or something like that. Poor Joss was wailing and thrashing and I had to hold her tight. I felt kinda bad, it took about five minutes to get the readings in both ears.

She passed the light/sound test with flying colors. We sit in a soundproof booth and the nurse sits in a room in front of us with a window. She made noises out of two speakers and two light boxes lit up. They had a sheep and a pig inside the boxes. She liked them at first and was excited, but after a minute or two she was like "Eff this." and turned around.

The nurse said she doesn't have any fluid in her ears, and that ignoring our commands is normal and will be for the next 18 years, lol! She set us up with a speech eval, that isn't until January.

I feel a lot better knowing that her hearing is perfect. I had a slight hearing issue as a kid, but I couldn't tell you which ear it came from.

I still don't feel good today, I have a crick in my neck that's making my ear and tooth hurt. Ughhhhhhh. I talked to my mom, she didn't sound too happy either. Maybe she realizes how freaked out I was the other day. Meh. I had a nightmare about that drive last night. :( I has a sad.

How are you?

I'm glad to hear about Joss's hearing! I've actually been meaning to schedule an evaluation for my daughter, who is constantly saying, "What did you say?" to us. We're not sure whether it's a hearing issue or an attention issue, though!
