I can “hear” clearly now…

Orla had a hearing test last week and the results revealed the best news yet..Orla’s hearing was found to be within the normal range in both ears in all the frequencies or pitches tested and her middle ear function was also normal. This is a remarkable turnaround from 5 years ago when we were told Orla was becoming profoundly deaf. Since her bone marrow transplant, Orla’s hearing has progressively improved and she also no longer suffers from numerous ear infections. She hasn’t been wearing her hearing aids for a little while now, as the aids would have blocked more sound than they let in, however she probably still struggled to hear all sounds in all environments. We are hopeful this improvement will help in our quest for her to develop speech…
