Miracles of Miracles

Do you know what song I'm thinking of? Yes it is from Fiddler on the Roof---I've been singing it to myself for the past two days because we have seen yet another miracle in our sweet Gracie's life!!

As you know Gracie had tubes placed in her ears on Tuesday and then they gave her another ABR (hearing test) and her hearing improved! The first test she had she scored 50 and 60, but the test after the tubes she scored 30 and 40, 30 is considered the high end of normal. The hope is that as she continues to lose more of the fluid in her ear she will improve on her hearing score.

Gracie now turns to the sound of a rattle or the sound of our voices. Oh how wonderful it is to watch that she is able to hear things in ways she hasn't been able to in quite some time---she is so alert and attentive. She truly is a miracle!!!

YAY!! I've been realizing how amazing it is to have a child respond in a different way and I can imagine your joy in seeing her interact with you in a whole new way! YAY!
