Decorating the CIs part 2


Thanks to another mom on cicircle, Julie (mom to a beautiful girl named Lera), we are now proud owners of flower coils. These are very light (the buttons were a little heavy) and easy as pie to do. Now Julie is way more crafty than I and has Lera's very fancy, but this is the generic version since this is all I could come up with. These are held on like I did the buttons with small velcro circles. I bought the artificial flowers at WalMart and cut the stem off completely so the back is now flat, attach the stick on velcro and you have it. Brook likes these best of all!!

Love that! I'm going to have to 'steal' your idea for Emily's implant(s). There's a little girl in Trey's class who has little sparklies all over her headpiece and it also looks fantastic.

Too cute :)

I think I'll do something similar for the HLAA convention in Reno. If you got it, flaunt it, eh? ;)

Oh my gosh, I've been so busy sticking her to utilitarian old appliances I never took the time to think of something as adorable as this!

(Nice Val, torment us Cochlear folks with the fancy AB stuff - or as my surgeon differentiated the two: the AB is a Maserati compared to the Cochlear Volvo or Saab -- cruel!)
