We just found out for sure today that Seth can't hear out of his left ear.
It is most likely something that he was born with. Apparently, the newborn
screen for hearing doesn’t always catch hearing loss in one ear. He had passed
that screen, but recently he had been failing hearing tests. We thought it may
have been related to the ear infections he struggled with recently, but the ENT believes
the high degree of hearing loss was not consistent with the hearing loss that would result from a bad ear infection. Thankfully, we know he has very good
hearing in his right ear, according to a more accurate and rigorous test.
now our job is to protect his right ear from any future damage and carefully
choose his seat when he goes anywhere. 🙂 Please pray that God would
restore Seth’s hearing in his left hear, if that be His will. Whether He
chooses to do that or not, pray that Seth’s hearing results in an understanding
and love of the gospel and a life that brings Jesus
Romans 10:17 (English Standard Version)
17So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
