17th – Update from Paula Wicker Hamby on “Sweet Baby James”.
Yesterday, Baby James had
tubes placed in his ears, and everything went well. This was his 19th time in the operating room, and
this time we got to take him home instead of staying in the hospital. As far as the ABR hearing test,
the results so far are the same....his right ear is still good, and his left ear has a moderate to severe
loss. We were referred to a speech pathologist, and told that he may need a hearing aid or an fm
system. Click for pic.
