The hearing aid vs. teether war might be coming to an end with the glorious help of a bonnet! Thank you to all who responded with tips and ideas, it certainly helped! It's too hot for pilot caps, but not for bonnets!
Today we had another excellent meeting with Lisa and Jacque at Sunshine Cottage. Everyday Bryan and I find ourselves with more and more questions. It is so nice to know that every week we are able to have answers to our many questions. One question that Bryan and I continue to struggle with is whether or not we should do one or two CIs in September. There are good reasons and research to support both options. I keep coming back to the idea that we do have two ears for a reason! I just don't know.
On another note we think that the hearing aids might be providing Courtney with some benefit. We discussed how unusually tired Courtney has been this past week, especially after she has worn her hearing aids for a while. This may be because she is hearing. However, distinguishing the sound is something different. The way that Lisa explained it was turning on a static radio all day long and having us try to make sense of it. We would be tired too! Courtney also turned two separate times when Bryan called out, "No, no, no!" from behind. It was as if she heard something, but wasn't sure what or where it came from.
Only time will tell what benefit, if any, Courtney is receiving from the hearing aids. Even if it was a fluke it was a welcomed glimmer of hope.
Logan is doing fabulous with his eye patch! He wore it for 3.5 hours the past two nights when he only has to for 2 hours! I figured it wouldn't hurt and if it wasn't bothering him, I wasn't going to take it off! So far a much better week for the Kohlers!
