Hearing test results
About a month ago Saidie was sedated for her ears to be cleaned, a tube to be inserted, and finally her hearing was tested using brain electrodes. Yesterday we visited the ear doctor to get the final results. The tube was in place, the other eardrum had healed, and the hearing test results were obtained.
I've got to admit, I expected some slightly abnormal results. What I didn't expect was to nearly lose it in the office.
Saidie's hearing tested completely within normal range in both ears.
I feel so humbled by this evidence of God's hand on Saidie. I can't help but think back to almost exactly one year ago when we were given Saidie's referral information. We were faced with some scary words: facial cleft, hemifacial microsomia, conduction deafness in both ears, abnormal hearing tests, unable to express herself verbally. I remember being concerned about conduction deafness. It involved such a wide range of possible scenarios and question marks.
We prayed and stepped out in obedience at that time. How amazing it is to me that God had already decided that Saidie would be spared of the challenge of deafness.
We praise God for this answered prayer!
