December 20th, 2008

Ok, so we are learning as we go.  It appears to be impossible to keep Carver's CI on.  He's constantly rubbing the back of his head and knocking it off.  So, after talking to another CI mom (Jenny), she recommended a pilot cap.  I've ordered one, but until we get it, Carver is wearing a bandanna.  He actually looks pretty cute with the bandanna on his head.  Now, it is staying on for longer periods of time.  He still knocks/rubs it off, but 1/2 the time it adjusts itself back into place.

Great idea! Once you get the pilot cap it will be smooth sailing!

Any responses to the ling sounds yet? The way you are holding him in the pic is great! I'm not sure if that was your husband, but have him hold Carver and then you watch Carver's face. Have your husband say the "ling 6" and you look for reaction. We found that once we got to Drew's 4th program he was actually detecting 4/6 lings. Pretty amazing. Make sure you do it in silence - no background noise. And keep a record of which ones he hears for the audiologist. When do you go back for your next mapping?

Never doubted the operation would be a success. What a great Christmas gift for Carver. Things should only get better from here.

Merry Christmas/ Happy thoughts and New Year. *<:o)
