MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE...

...with that hearing aid.
It's gonna be awhile.
I took Bubby up to Dartmouth today.
He saw the good Dr. Smith. (ENT)
The choices he gave us are these:
1. live with the hearing aid
2. more sugery
We chose to live with the hearing aid.
It even matches his uniform!
We really don't want to put Kaleb through another surgery.
He has a titanium piece that replaced his stapes.
The doctor figured that it has been jostled out of place.
That's what happens when you have an active child.
There is no guarantee that it wouldn't happen again.
The results from his first surgery
gave him 6 months of normal hearing.
That's not a lot of time for such an involved surgery.
Going through it again would mean time out from sports.
He's not willing to do it...I don't blame him.
So on he goes, with his new side kick in tow.
It's not so bad, atleast that's what he tells me!

I agree with LL. He has a wonderful attitude. Guess he gets that from his Mom!! He can hear, and that's what's important here. There are some children out there who have never heard anything, and if the aid helps him, so be it. My Mom wore one for years. She had a stapedectomy done in each ear and her hearing was great for 10 years without the help of a hearing aid. Then she had to revert back to the hearing aid again. They have become so much better through the years since my mother had to wear one, too.

He looks like an undercover something or another with his wires sticking out of his collar. Just like Dad.
