@rip Aw, your dog sounds adorable and definitely a Heinz 57! Dogs are just the most amazing critters. So loving and great companions. I’m happy she’s in your life!
Ron, I’m also happy to hear you’re being proactive with seeing the ENT for your ears and, having your eyes examined. Was the ENT physician encouraging with your hearing loss? Can it be reversed or would a hearing aid help you? We have some great conversations in our Connect group~Hearing Loss. It might be a good resource for you to know others are experiencing similar symptoms. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/hearing-loss/
Wishing you all the best for some good news! Lori.
