Muja has moderate hearing loss at birth as a result of her brain injuries. People who suffer from moderate hearing loss have difficulty keeping up with conversations when not using a hearing aid. Alhamdulillah she has been using hearing aids since she was one.
Last Thursday Muja had her hearing review at Australian Hearing. Last review was on February and the next review will be in October. Her audiologist, Michael, checked her ears. Alhamdulillah her ears are excellence without any infection or water but her right ear has some wax deep inside it. Alhamdulillah there were nothing wrong to her middle ears.
I asked Muja's audiologist how to clean the wax. He said that I can buy a drop at the chemist. He also said that I can use sodium bicarbonate. He gave me the recipe. Mixed 1/4 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate in 10 mls of water. Then drops it into the ear. I am so glad that there is a natural way to clean the ears without any harmful chemicals and dangerous tools.
After that Muja's hearing were test in a sound proof room. There, sounds are made. She did not respond well to the sounds like her previous test she had at PMH, for ENT appointment. Occasionally her eyes blinked. I am sure she can hear but her physical condition makes it difficult for her to turn to any sounds. Masha Allah, I know she can hear me because when I call her name she responds with a smile.
During the review he also made sure that the hearing aids is working soundly. He also cleaned it and made a new mould for Muja's ears because its getting loose. Using loose hearing aids cause them to make a whistling sound. There is also a great chance for them to get lost because they can get off the ears easily.
