Jonah had a follow-up appointment with the ENT today after school. His ears have gotten worse. She said he is only hearing about 30%. She told us that if he isn't seeing us, then he probably isn't hearing us. She said the severity of the fluid on his ears will cause him another 3-5 weeks before he is better. I wanted you to be aware of this because I know it could affect his behavior if he can't hear the instructions being given. If you notice him not responding or not following instructions, there is a good chance that he didn't hear you. (although, I won't rule out him just not obeying sometimes!) He isn't hurting but he definitely isn't hearing well.
I got responses from most of them letting me know they got the message and thanks for letting them know. Later in the day, I got this from his drama teacher.
Jonah came in class today and told me right away that he was having difficulty hearing. I said, “I received an e-mail from your mom, but thank you for speaking up and telling me. That is very responsible.” Jonah responded, “I am always responsible about my body.” I thought it was cute the way he said it and wanted to share….
