I was worried about two things today - Harper couldn't have anything to eat or drink until after her test and if you know her - that could be a little stressful. And I was worried about her getting an IV.
We confirmed that Harper does have moderate hearing loss. We will be getting hearing aids and starting speech therapy soon. I'm honestly not upset about it at all - we are just excited to help her hear. Harper talks SOOO much (she never stopped talking the ENTIRE 3.5 hr trip home) but a lot of it isn't clear and it looks like she is missing so much of what we are saying so I feel like with help - she is REALLY going to take off. And Harper LOVES music and singing so I'm excited to watch her once she can really hear the music.
Since Harper had such a great "nap" and was in a really good mood and because we were so hungry - we decided to chance eating out for lunch. We went to one of our favorite places, Cantina Laredo and it was so good.
I have to add that if you ever feel down or depressed or sorry for yourself - go spend an hour or two in a waiting room at a children's hospital. I left our waiting room in tears because my heart just hurt for all the parents in there who were dealing with REAL issues with their kids. Yes - facing hearing aids with a toddler and knowing she will wear those for life is not the easiest thing - but it just doesn't compare to other situations I saw. I am just praying God gives EXTRA blessings to parents of truly sick/special needs kids. I sort of feel like He does.
