July 16th, 2008

Today was our first day doing our PT in the pool.  Unfortunately, we forgot the camera.  I took a couple of pictures when we got home, but it's just not the same.  They loved the water.  We were in the water for at least 45 minutes.  They didn't care for the sun, so they wore cute little matching hats.  We're looking forward to returning to the pool very soon - possibly tomorrow.  

Carver's Cochlear Implant update:

I forgot to update everyone on our July 11th appointment with Carver's ENT.  His ENT was pleased with his weight gain (19 lbs) and said that he is ready to start the process to get the implants started.  He said it would take about a month to get all of the insurance approvals.  He's also going to review our latest CT scans from the hospital to see if there is enough information to avoid getting another CT scan.  We should know more within the next month, but we expect to be getting his first implant in the next month.

hey shanon,
conner loved the pool too. i'm trying to convince our pt to take us into hydrotherapy. she said we might when conner gets a little bigger. i'm glad that they are moving along with carver's cochlear implants. from what i've been reading, it sounds like they will make a huge difference for him. when are you coming back up here?
