At that point his primary care doctor decided it would be best to send him off to an ENT for evaluation. I was so frustrated - not at the doctor, not at Henry - just at the situation. I really had no doubt that Henry's ears were fine. Failing the test is a total Henry thing to do. He is a dreamer - a head up in the clouds kind of kid. During one of the tests I heard him say to the nurse, "Oops, I keep forgetting to raise my hand!" That was on the third test when I was wrangling an unruly Daniel in the hallway and wouldn't have minded ripping my own ears off at that point.
But alas, alas, Henry and I headed off to see the ENT yesterday to have an evaluation and a full hearing test with an audiologist. Not surprisingly, you put that boy in a sound proof room with no distractions and high tech testing devices and he can hear everything. He heard every single noise and easily passed every part of the test. So there you have it - FIVE hearing tests later he got a passing score. Watch out Kindergarten - Henry's coming for you!
