We made a calendar and marked the day when he could wear both of his implants. He counted the days from now until then and gave me a thumbs up!
I have been trying to be patient as well. I have come accustom to having him hear my voice and respond, so it's been frustrating to have to tap him to get his attention, or run after him when we are crossing the street. And the worst...losing him in a store today and knowing that he can't hear me call his name or even answer a stranger when they try to help him. Ughhh!
He has been focusing so much on lip reading. We have been working so hard to teach him to not do that for the past year, but I have not discouraged it these past few days because, again, I want to make this as easy as possible for him.
Today he was able to repeat the ling sounds, which he wasn't able to do the last few days, so we're getting there. I just hope Logan can be patient.
