can you hear me now?

after months and months of really boring, dry, sunny weather, i got a doozy of a day for a road trip in to austin.  i spent 3.5 hours on the road and got to experience rain, blinding rain, hail, dense fog, and rush hour traffic.

the squirt and i braved it all to get to dell children’s hospital for his hearing screening.

i am not going to lie, i really wasn’t optimistic about the whole process, and the weather didn’t do a thing to lower my stress level.  i am out of practice for big city driving, and bad weather just makes it more nerve wracking.

i am pleased to say my little man came through for me.  it didn’t start off well, he really doesn’t like waiting rooms and parking lots….and there was a good 20 minutes of screaming.  fortunately our friends the penguins came on at 3:00 and provided a little relief!

the squirt was quite good once we got into the audiologists office and we were able to do what she needed to do.  allergies had one ear too gummed up to test, but he was a very good sport about earplugs and bleeps and clicks.

while the results were not perfect, due to the aforementioned snot issue, it did go well enough that she determined that he can hear and no further testing is needed (unless they plan to put him under sedation for some other kind of test anyway).  so phew!!

i have more good news, but i think i will save it for tomorrow!
