Mr. Miracle Surfaces Again

I am feeling ultra thankful tonight!
But before I tell you why, I have to set you up for the "big finish".
Months and months ago, you may remember this:
http://reincarnatedasamother.blogspot.com/2011/02/we-both-survived.html
It was Kean's first ABR (sedated hearing test).
At the first one, we were told his hearing loss was likely "conductive"
which means he either had his tubes blocking some of the hearing or
his ears weren't quite developed yet or who knows.
Well, today he had another ABR.
The ramping up to the testing is the worst--
you know, no food for five hours, medications that before
making him pass out into a super sleepy state ramp him up
into a screaming, agitated, squirming bucking bronco.
But it was all worth it.
Because his tests today show his hearing has improved
to the point he likely will NOT NEED HEARING AIDS.
So sorry to virtually scream that-- but I am ready to dance
naked in the streets.
(Don't freak out-- just a poor figure of speech).
Those of you who have been around us lately will loudly
testify that I have of recent spent 89 point six percent of my time
sticking Kean's hearing aids back into his ears after he
has pulled them out over and over again.
And that is not an exaggeration!
Maybe, just maybe he wasn't participating in an evil plan to put me on the other side of the grass (know what I mean?).
Maybe, just maybe, he was trying to tell me
"hey people, listen up!  I can hear pretty darn well without these
things sticking in my ears."
