Over the last 3 weeks or so, I’ve really noticed a problem with Cadens hearing ability. At first, I thought he was just being 2, and not listening. I’d hear, ‘what mommy’ after everything I said. I started getting really frustrated with him over this. When he’d be playing by himself, and I’d call his name, he wouldn’t have any response. I could say his name 3-4 times and still nothing. Eventually he started coming up to me and every so softly saying ‘what mommy’, with his head turned to one side (the right). I figured this must be more than not listening.
I took him to urgent care on Wednesday morning and explained the problem. The doctor took a look in both of his ears and told me that his left ear looked really red. She figured he must have complained about it, or have been pulling at it. I told her he has done or said nothing. I’ve even asked him if his ears hurt and he says no. So she prescribed some medication for him and we are going back to see his doctor on the 22nd. From there, she will take a look to see if his eardrum is able to get sound or if we will need to go see a specialist. Today is day 3 of the medicine and so far I’d say its only getting worse. But I’ll keep going with it and hope that I see a change soon.
