A popular result for Evan, Monday's behavioral test in the booth was once again inconclusive. He cried the whole time.
He is scheduled for a repeat try in another week or so. Jeremy is going to try bringing a booster seat from home for him to sit in (he had to sit in one of those restraunt-style highchairs, which aren't very supportive). The audiologist will also defer looking inside his ears until after the test next time--this never fails to elicit a good rise out of Evan, and it's hard to calm him down after.
Plan B is to obtain a BAER with Evan's hearing aids and also with a bone conduction aid. This would be done while he is under general anesthetic, at the same time as the MRI and urology surgery. An "aided" BAER is not routeinly done, but it would be some kind of baseline to have in the event we never get a conclusive behavioral test.
I wish there was a way to make Evan understand the "hows" and the "whys" of these tests. But if we could communicate that to him, we probably wouldn't be considering a CI in the first place...
