June 13 - "Most Likely Fluid"

Madison had her first physician’s visit a few days after we got home from the hospital.  She was a healthy baby and would not receive any vaccines until her one month visit.  The medical technician performed the same “newborn hearing screen” that was conducted in the hospital.  This is known as the OAE hearing screen (see below).  Madison did not pass in either of her ears.  Our physician asked if we had any hearing loss issues in our families.  We told her that we did not.  Once again, we were reassured by our physician that things are okay and not to worry.  She stated that the cause is most likely fluid and that will drain on it’s own over time.  Brian and I didn’t really think much of it, but we did start to pay attention to Madison’s response to sounds…
