Our boy can hear!

Ryan passed his hearing test. We are so relieved.

I wasn't sure what to expect but the audiologists at the Columbus Speech & Hearing Center were so wonderful with him. I warned them of his fear of enclosed spaces and they got him all set up with a Baby Einstein video for the first test. They placed a small probe in each ear to test for tone. Once he passed that part we moved into a sound proof booth. One audiologist sat with us to keep Ry occupied in between tests, while the others were on the other side of the booth running the test. There was a large speaker on either side of him and every time Ryan heard something and looked toward the speaker an old fashioned bear playing cymbals would light up and play. Ry would get so excited when he saw them and kept signing more, more!

So he passed with flying colors! Now we wait for the speech evaluation.
