The Dates Are Set!!

I know it's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy, busy, busy and a little under the weather (more on that in the next post).  Anyway, I would be remiss if I failed to update on CJ and Liam's cochlear implant schedules.

CJ will be going this coming Tuesday morning to get his left ear implanted. He is beyond thrilled and can't wait to get on with the show. I think he'll initially be a little frustrated because it's not going to sound like the other ear right away.  In time, though, he'll finally be hearing well with both ears.

Liam's implant is scheduled for just two weeks after CJ.  That should keep me good and busy, right?  We wanted to do both ears at once, but there is a glitch in his anatomy (the same glitch CJ has actually) that puts him at a really high risk for meningitis and other difficult complications.  We all agreed that it's in his best interest to only do one ear at a time.

So, that's our biggest update.  Just a few days away for CJ, and just a couple of weeks for Liam.  I'm pretty calm right now, but I think it just hasn't all really sunk in yet.

  1. You are going to be one busy mama over the next few weeks! I hope that CJ transitions as easily as possible to the new "ear," and I'm praying for both of their surgeries. Here's to better hearing!
