Conall's Cleft Lip and Palate

Conall, our youngest son, was born October 31, 2002 with a wide unilateral cleft lip and palate. Conall weighed 10lbs, 10oz! Not such a little guy! Over his lifetime, he will have several procedures and surgeries to bring the separated parts of his mouth together. We're using the blog as a place to share our experience with others who are seeking information and, perhaps, some reassurance.

Hearing test - all systems go!

Conall had a hearing test at the Alberta Children's Hospital today.  This is a routine test to ensure that the tubes in his ears are working and that he can hear properly.  Conall sits in one room and the technician in another with a window.  He is fitted with some sort of hearing device and follows directions to indicate sound or to repeat words.  Conall came through with flying colours - he actually enjoys the "hearing games" as he calls them.
