She can still hear OK but while she is still developing her speech, the consultant explained that the hearing aids will help her. A bit like putting glasses on and suddenly seeing things a little bit sharper...the hearing aids will just help a bit, particularly at school later on when it comes to hearing in classes and spelling out words.
We'll be going back to have molds of her ears taken shortly.
While we were at the hospital we met two other parents whose children also have medulla blastoma, who are going through exactly the same treatment and who were there for hearing tests because of the cisplatin. It is odd talking to people who have exactly the same treatments - they tell me that what we have is rare so to have three of us in the one place at the same time felt very strange. Perhaps we need to form a club!
