The results of Theo's EEG test came back normal.
Yesterday Theo had two more doctor's appointments. First we returned to the ENT (ear nose throat specialist) who said that Theo had only a scant amount of fluid in one ear, and none in the other. So all is well with his ears for now. Continue to give him nasal spray and come back in three months.
Then, a trip to the allergist. Several people had recommended we go, just to rule out allergies as a possible speech delay culprit. Well, the allergies are ruled out.
I'm starting to accept that he's got a delay and that's that. Time to stop making excuses that maybe he can't hear or maybe this or maybe that. Just get him the help he needs, send him to his special little pre school, and catch him up for kindergarten. That's the plan.
I guess the ear infections were just a coincidence. An annoying coincidence that fucked me up with confusion for too long.
