Ronin and I laid on the floor with Keira this morning and took some lovely pictures.
Next was our 3 hour appointment with the audiologist. And the results were...good news! All things considered, her hearing looks normal. If you've been wondering how they test a baby's hearing, here you go:
Next hearing test: 2 months.
Jeff and I are interested in having her assessed by an occupational therapist (OT) and/or physical therapist (PT) right away. We suspect that she has some hypertonia. This is a problem where the muscles are overly tight or rigid, making it difficult for the muscles to relax and contract normally to allow everyday activity. This is common in CMV babies and can eventually make it hard to eat, walk, etc. Jeff and I have noticed that it's difficult to get her dressed because she doesn't want to relax her arms and legs. It's not too concerning at this point, but the sooner problems are addressed, the better the outcomes.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
