  • I was on a family vacation. I don’t hear out of one ear.

    I remember there was lots of noise outside and I said to my parents, “I’m going to make it quiet now,” and I would roll over on my side.

    It wasn’t until later, when I was 4 or 5, that my parents discovered that I couldn’t hear out of one ear.

    I still sleep on my side with my good ear down.
