BWS - Hearing Loss

People with BWS are also at risk for hearing loss.  The hearing loss can appear suddenly and be progressive.  Unfortunately Micaelyn failed her most recent hearing test at school, and she also failed further hearing testing.  We really weren't surprised by this as she seems not to hear a lot of what we say and she talks SO LOUD!!!  We will be visiting with the specialists soon to figure out what the next steps are in dealing with the loss she already has and preparing for any future loss.  So far we don't believe Elianna has any hearing loss, but that doesn't mean she never will so she will continue to be monitored and will be tested every year for hearing loss.

Since we are all looking forward to warmer weather here are some random pictures from last summer.
