I'm so sorry it has been so long since I have updated my blog. It has been like 4 months since my last post, Sorry!!!! I don't even know where to start.
C is doing really well with his Cochlear Implants. He had his 2nd implant on Sept. 23 and then 2 weeks later had it turned on. The 2nd surgery was harder on him than the first. I don't know if it had something to do with him being older or maybe it was because the surgery took a little longer that the 1st.
C is slowly making progress. He is saying about 10 words at this time and understands even more. At times I don't know if we are doing enough for him. In July we decided to put C in private speech therapy. I think it was a great move for C. He has made leaps since then. I just regret not doing it sooner. The problem in our area is there are not a lot of professionals who have worked with CI kids as young as C was and is. I hope we are doing enough for him but we will keep working to do the best and get the best for him.
He is such a smart little boy. He has figured out how to communicate with us even when he doesn't know the words, but look out he had a temper!! That boy is either really happy or REALLY upset!!!! I think he gets that from his Daddy.
L and D are doing really well. They are both talking up a storm. L is easier understood than D due to D has a little lisp. I'm hoping she will grow out of that or we may have another in speech therapy.
Sorry again for my absence, thanks for sticking around!!
