The results are in....

After taking Kylan to his hearing evaluation today, the guilt set in. One reason that we are having such a tough time with him not listening to us, is actually not his fault. He has moderate hearing loss in both ears. His ear drums are not moving and they are suppose to be. The administrator said that when we are talking at our normal level, then Kylan is only hearing a whisper. He also asked if he had his tonsils and adnoids still. He was concerned when he found out that Kylan already had those removed. He said that 85% of kids with this problem were cleared of the problem once that took place, and that Kylan must not be in that percentile. He said that we need to see an ENT asap! A lot of initials in there, huh? Since I am taking a personal day next week anyway, I am going to try my best to get him in that day. On a more positive note, he said that it could still be a simple solution such as allergy testing to see if that is what is keeping his problem in his middle ear flared up. I will keep everyone posted on what the ENT says. Jace is still miserable as well. We fought fever all night again last night and still today. He did really well this morning and I thought that maybe the fever was gone, however around 6 this evening he started running a high temp. again. I am going to have to end up taking off half a day tomorrow because I have no one to keep him all day. John's mom has to work and my mom has a doc. appt. So, John's mom was gracious enough to get it worked out so that she could just wait and go in at lunch. I'm telling you, I don't know how people do it that don't have family around. I have been so fortunate for the most part to have the kids grandparents able to keep the boys if they get sick. Bless their hearts, the last two weeks they have been taking care of my boys left and right. This is when it makes me feel sooooo bad that I work, after all I'm their mommy, I should be the one that does the whole chicken soup thing. I guess you do what you have to do though. Just keep the boys in your thoughts and prayers!!!!

Try not to worry about the mommy-guilt. You are doing the best you can and you really ARE sooo blessed to have so much family around. We don't have any and it is so hard sometimes.
I'll be praying those boys get healthy and your ENT appt goes well.
