When I was young I had a lot of ear infections...my eardrum burst once too and I remember having to get my ears suctioned out when I was little. I had tubes and that helped out a lot...I don't know if I had hearing issues or not...but I think that's why I had them suctioned.

But I second that the ear infections and loud vehicles may have something to do with it if there is something wrong. And as JDI said...if it does come down to something, that this is a good age because kids are great adapters and it'll be easier to "get used" to it.

I would go out and get another opinion, another test done somewhere else. Something you should do whenever there is any doubts about a test like this, or something that is of concern to your health. If the results come up the same way then I would start to look at what his options are.

Bah.... Seth is fine! I've been whispering to him since I got him last night. I even went in before I went to bed to check on him, and whispered "I Love You" and he kind of responded lol (he was out).

We are still taking him to a specialist just to cover our bases.

Yay! I'm so glad to hear that things went well with him last night. Good thing to still go and get everything checked out though.

Oh, poor guy. My cousin who is about three only has about half of her hearing due to ear problems that took too long to get straightened out. It's rough communicating with her, but she understands and talks with us pretty easily... well, as well as a three year old can talk.

Hope everything works out and you figure everything out.

He's pretty good about picking up his toys, it's tormenting the dog that he can't seem to resist.
