Cole had his hearing test today and luckily they found that he had fluid behind his ears. His hearing loss is significant enough that it could affect him in school. (He compared it to plugging your ears constantly, or to being underwater) I had a hunch this was the problem, but you know how you always have those "what if's" pop up in your mind. So the next step is to take him to the doctor, who will probably prescribe antibiotics, if that doesn't work, he may need tubes in his ears. So...i'm relieved. It's fixable!
