as i was contemplating a cochlear implant for alexander
a hearing aid was pulled from his ear,
chucked across the room and struck the back of my head.
it seemed as though he was saying,
"that's it! no more aids and no more molds please!
that being said, he has a surgery date scheduled.
in 23 days he will have two cochlear implants.
we still have concerns.
when alexander throws temper tantrums he stripes his ears of his equipment and throws them as far as he can. then he proceeds to get them and quickly dismantle them into a million pieces.
he knows he will get our attention if he does that.
a hearing aid and an implant are easy to spot,
but the thought of two implants thrown in opposite directions could be much.
also having to constantly follow him around the house to replace two implants back on his ears is an exhausting thought.
when are toddlers able to put their own implants on after they slip off?
