Hearing is important, can you HEAR me?
Learning to live with deafness and a cochlear implant

Tap, Tap, Tap
Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap.... do you hear me tapping? I am STILL waiting to hear whether insurance has approved our 2nd implant. The suspense has me hanging on the edge and I don't do well on the edge. I just can't understand what the hold up is. Actually I can't understand why insurance would have a problem with someone having two ears to begin with... other than they are run by the mafia and it's legalized theft but because we have sooo many issues, we have to have it. Anyway, if I'm not tapping my foot, I'm tapping a pencil or pen.
On another note, Max has had very dry lips so I bought him some chapstick of his very own. Well, apparently when you are just learning to speak chapstick is a very hard thing to say as it comes out of his mouth as "chashit". Crap! This reminds me so much of the e-mail I received a long time ago about it being the worst mother's day ever because she found out that her small son had been putting chapstick on the cat's butt! Apparently my son has read or heard of that e-mail because no matter how hard we practice trying to say it right, it still comes out as "chashit". I think I'll notify his SLP and see if she can get it to come out right. Can you hear me?
