The smallest monkey has normal hearing. Hooray! It's been a long time coming but our little monkey now has normal hearing......no current glue ear and no further grommets needed. I'm so chuffed. His hearing has been in question since birth but now at 5 years old his hearing test on Tuesday confirmed he has normal hearing.
He has been so brave having regular appointments with the ENT department at our local hospital and two operations 14 months apart. Hopefully soon to be discharged he just has a check up in 6 months time. The service we have received from the NHS has been fantastic. I really cannot complain at all!
Now he can concentrate on being happy at school and playing with his friends, with much improved speech. He has come on so much since we found out why his speech was delayed and discovered the glue ear. A very common complaint with children and often undetected. I can't thank our old health visitor enough for referring him for a hearing test at 18 months old.
Now we are going to enjoy his chatter, lively nature and mischievous ways. You rock little monkey!
