My son will be six next week. The school nurse called me today. I did not expect her to say, "Koby did not pass the hearing test." She said she kept him there longer, closed all doors.. etc. She even brought him back in at the end of the day and tried again. She said it was consistant with earlier. She checked his ears and they looked fine. If anything, they looked sucked in? Not sure what that meant. He's had a cough for about a month and a little bit of a runny nose and talking funny for maybe a week. So maybe it's just a cold? But maybe this explains why I have to repeat everything, why he always says WHAT?, talks so loud...etc! But I thought these were all normal kid things. Since he's been home 2 1/2 hrs he has said "What?" twice or just hasn't heard me...

Anyway, she wants me to take him to a specialist. I hope I can get him seen tomorrow. I'm so worried. These are his results. Can someone please explain them to me? Will he have a hearing aid? etc!
