    She got accepted to FSDB!!

    Just had to come on here and post that yesterday we had our meeting with FSDB for assessments and consideration for schooling for our 3 year-old daughter in their Early Learning Center. It was a very long day with many assessments (some of which they said she didn't really want to do- she is...

    I'm still here

    Just thought I better pop in and say 'hi- I'm still hanging around'! :) I've been a bit busy lately with work and normal everyday stuff. I didn't want everyone to think I was just one of those hearing people who pop on for a little bit and then disappear :(. I have popped in a few times to...

    YAY! Finally have hearing aids!

    Got a call yesterday from my daughter's audiologist saying that her hearing aids had come in and they had a cancellation for today... SO- we went and picked up her hearing aids today!! I was a bit worried about how she would react when we put them on her since she is three and has been known...

    Daughter's HA appointment

    So, my three year old has an appointment for Thursday with the ENT/Audiologist to discuss her hearing results and fit her for hearing aids. I guess they will be making the molds at this appointment and then we will have another one once they are made to make sure they fit and work and...

    My Nerves Are SHOT!

    So, I would love to hear some suggestions from other parents of deaf/hard of hearing kids on how you handle taking them in public. Ever since my 3 year old daughter started showing signs of hearing loss it has been HELL most of the time to take her places in public. She seems to do ok at first...

    "In-between"

    I don't really know where to begin. I have posted a few times about my 3 year old daughter and her sudden (or seemingly sudden) hearing loss this past December. You can find those posts in the "parents" section if you like. I am posting this question/rant/what-have-you in this section because...

    What should I know about hearing aids?

    Today we finally got some answers about our 3 year old's hearing loss. She has a definite hearing loss that begins around 40db at the lowest hz and drops to about 70-80db in the highest hz. The audiologist said that they will be fitting her for hearing aids and so I was just wondering if...

    ABR Results Today!!

    Well, today was the day and we took our 3 year old daughter to the hospital for her sedated ABR. I did not get a copy of the audiogram but I have a pretty good memory of what it consisted of. Basically, though, they did confirm that she has a hearing loss. She is obviously not hearing voices...

    Tomorrow's the day!

    Just wanted to ask for positive thoughts and vibes for my daughter tomorrow while she undergoes her sedated ABR test. I am relieved that we will finally have concrete answers and can then begin to figure out which direction we need to go in since we have no idea at all what her hearing loss is...

    Ok, I have to brag...

    Maybe I shouldn't say brag, but I guess that is what it is :) ... After my initial "posts of panic" I have just been silently reading around the site trying to get comfortable and a sense of things. So- I just had to share some happy thoughts (after all the panic I shared initially)!! My...

    Guess I should have done this last night...

    I made my first post last night, but am now thinking that maybe I should have introduced myself first (I apologize- I've not been on many chat boards and it usually isn't necessary, but maybe it is important here?). So, here is my introduction (although I don't really know where to start). I...

    Completely Lost...

    I was not sure if I should start here or in the introduction forum... So I am going with this one. Like the title says, I am completely lost at the moment and feel like I am spinning my wheels. I am a hearing parent with two daughters, a 7 year old who is hearing and a 3 year old who appears...
