June 9 - Newborn Hearing Screen

At the time, little did we know that this was going to be the first of many tests in Madison’s life.  An audiologist came into our recovery room saying she needed to conduct a “newborn hearing screen”.  She inserted tiny probes into Madison’s ears and measured the output of sound waves with a small hand-held device.  She didn’t pass… We were told not to worry, that most babies don’t pass at this age.  The likely cause is fluid in the ear from birth.  She reassured us that everything was going to be okay.  Brian and I thought nothing of it and continued enjoying the moments of Madison’s first day of life.
