My son Mitchell (9 months old) was officially diagnosed today has having permanent signifcant hearing loss. There were no measurable readings in his right ear (profound loss) and his left ear has severe to profound loss. I thought I was prepared for it, but it still stung to hear the audiologist give us the results today. With his level of loss, the audiologist did not sound too optimistic that hearing aids will help him, but we are going to try them first. I suspect Mitchell will end up needing a cochlear implant to develop speech. It's been a tough day - I hope there are brighter days aheaad.
