Moving On.......


and moving right along.......
we haven't done this in years! I thought it was all still pink, and now I find out the audiologist had blue ear putty. He said that the earmold should be camo when it returns and she said "Okay." Wow...We made our first big step in the bilateral process. We go back on Jan 2 to do all the testing and paperwork and WILL get this filed on that day to insurance, it's on a Friday. I will call them on Monday or Tuesday and explain the urgency in this case, and hopefully they'll approve it quickly and we can get him a rt side implant sooner than later. We have decided to hold off on the Dec. 29 removal and will combine the two surgeries, since Gage isn't wearing his ci anymore (or at least only like 30 min a day or less) he's not in great pain so we have decided to save him a surgery and go OUT with OLD and IN with NEW for our new year.

This was taken a few days ago when he still had the IV in, which was removed on Tues. (he's enjoying his freedom) The hardest part of at-home-teaching isn't the work, it isn't that he can't hear, it's the ADHD !!! That's hard. But it hasn't taken me very long, as you can see...he's on the porch doing one sheet, yesterday we went to the library when Brook was in school and I started him at the far end of the library....he did one row of a simple math sheet (one of our last few from school's make up work when we were in the hosp.) and each time he completed a row we moved to the next table, our goal was the door to leave. Whew, I'm not as anxious when he does it this way and neither is he. I'm learning, but it's not as easy as all the homeschool moms make it look!!

Wow- blue putty! Ours is pink, I didn't know they had blue!

I'm sending "hurry up" vibes to the insurance company- may that approval come quickly.

Excellent news - keeping everything crossed that the double plan comes off in the New Year for you guys! Out with old in with the new indeed.

I really hope that you guys can combine both surgeries...what a relief that would be :)
