Looking for joy :: DPP Day Fifteen ~ Precious Pip

I never take anything for granted but have often said how grateful I am that Pip is the healthy one and not encumbered by problems.  Sadly this is not now the case and as of this morning we learned that she has significant hearing loss as a result of problems/damage to the cochlear.  We are now awaiting a referral to a specialist in audio vestibular medicine.  Sometimes, life really does not make any sense but as Christians we know that God is for us and so once more we lean all the harder on Him and his word.  I really do not know what we would do without our faith.

How did this happen? How did you notice it?

Don't know how it happened but we noticed that she wasn't responding when we called her name and the television and radio had to be on stupidly loud for her to hear.

Oh San! Gosh, I'm sorry. Isn't it so hard when it is one.more.thing?? We have variations of hearing loss in our family; there are lots of helps these days: lots of prayers for all of you as Pip walks this new path.

Learn hard on God: He can handle it, even when we cannot. {{hugs}}
