ENT

Finally got E and V scheduled with a pediatric ENT.  We suspect E has partial hearing loss coupled with huge tonsils and low tone.  His speech is horrible.

So we'll go have a hearing test and a full exam by an ENT in April.  V is also coming along because he has huge tonsils and is always harumphing and coughing and clearing his throat.  We were told they probably both need their tonsils and adenoids out as it could be causing them obstructive sleep apnea.

 I'm really curious to see if E has hearing loss because he passed the screening at school.  Its obvious he CAN hear some, but some sounds like "k" and "t" and "r" that he is not even attempting.  There is a word "po-ko-ran-ee" in Ukrainian that he says "po-hah-hany."  "See you tomorrow" sounds like "seeya malaya."  He can say "mama" and "papa" but "good night" sounds like "goo-ny."  "Doh-po-bach-in-ya" sounds like "po-po-bah-nah."

I wish we could get in before April, but oh well...
