The unknown is a very scary thing. My DH often reminds me that Wade doesn't know he is different--at this point anyway. It's the adults that struggle so much with it.

Also, do you remember me commenting about your siggy picture quite awhile back? I think I said something about Orlaith looking like she knew something the rest of us didn't. Kinda like an old soul. Just the look in her eyes. She's beautiful! Keep us posted on your journey with the doctors! I don't know everything, but I do have experience in the field if you have any questions. Just PM me! :D


lol I do remember you saying that and I agree completely, I have often thought "She has been here before" :) I cant wait until she can talk and can tell me what she's thinking :)

Honestly, I think I would rule out other things/test other areas before going through with the sedation. Especially if you think her hearing is fine. If you don't find any other answers, then I would consider further hearing tests.

Dixie- Thanks I think thats what I am going to do, I hate the thought of sedating her. I posted in toddlers yesterday about Ó saying her 1st word. My sister gave her a Minnie Mouse umbrella and wellies. She got really excited when she saw the umbrella and said "Mickey" really clearly. I couldnt believe it :D
