November 20th, 2008
Not much going on here. We have a couple of new nurses starting. Nurse Jane will start December 1st. I can already tell that she is going to be a great addition to our family. I'm excited for her to start. She'll work Mondays and Fridays. Nurse Marci will work Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We have another nurse starting this weekend. Her name is Maria. She'll work Saturdays and Sundays.
Carver is still recovering from his first CI surgery. What I thought was swelling has turned out to be hematoma (blood pooled between the skull and scalp). My pediatrician wasn't too concerned about the bleeding. I'm worried about it. We see the surgeon tomorrow. I'm hoping this won't slow down activation. The bleeding could take a month or more to go away.
Carver has started looking at the lights during vision therapy. This is a pretty big deal. He's avoided them in the past. This shows that his vision is improving. He has cortical vision loss. With this type of loss, it takes lots and lots of therapy to get working vision. It's not much, but the more we do, the more he will get.
