Muriel had a hearing test before we left the hospital. It worked more or less the same as in Seattle. The technician comes in right before we are about to leave and needs about 5 minutes of absolute silence. Muriel did fine, but I was worried about Rowan (he came with me to take them home). He normally isn't real happy when strange people show up, but he did fine.
The tests indicated that Muriel's hearing is fine and they gave us a document to take to the pediatrician.
