Hearing evaluation...number six

Six-months have passed and it was time for another hearing screening. I am 99.999% sure that Monkey has absolutely no problems hearing, but it always puts my mind at ease to have her all checked out.

Besides, if Monkey can't hear, she can't learn.

This audiologist was wonderfully perfect!
She was friendly to Monkey, Chris and Me. She appeared to have a sense of humor and was even able to hold a conversation. All skills that the other audiologist was seriously lacking.

Our appointment was at 8:00 a.m.
First appointment of the day.
I intentionally try to always schedule the first appointment of the day to minimize any disruption to our day.
When we walked into the waiting area, it was evident that no one else was around and the shade to the window was closed. Leave it to me to wonder if possibly I got the appointment wrong and was there at the wrong day/time.
I walked over to the other clinic (all other clinics were open and buzzing with patients and employees) to ask the receptionist if there was a reason that audiology appeared closed.

So, I asked, "I'm sorry to bother you, but audiology appears closed. I feel silly, are they possibly closed on Mondays and I got my appointment wrong?

The receptionist politely looked back at the clock on the wall, looked at me and said these fabulous words:

"It's 7:59. They don't open until 8:00."

My response, "oh....k....thank you" and I couldn't help the little smirk on my face as I walked away.

The clinic window was not opened until 8:07
we were not called to the window until 8:22.

We were the only people in the waiting room for Pete's sake!!!!!
I realize nobody else cares, but I do have a job and meetings that I have to rush back to get to. I don't have the time or patience for that kind of mess!

I think I would have screamed had we been stuck with a horrible audiologist, so luckily, we appeared to have the best.

Monkey did well during the exam and I think she did really well with the hearing test in the booth.

We were able to get a good enough reading on her test and it showed no concerns with her hearing!

Our next appointment is scheduled for six-months out....once again, at 8:00 a.m.

I'm so happy to hear there's still no problem with Addie's hearing!
