The last Month

A lot has happened in the last month. We did get a loaner pair of hearing aids from JTC. They aren't as great as the ones we have. They are older and don't have the feedback management like the others. But they are fine and strong enough for her. We also got more molds made so that is helping out with the feedback. We talked to our AVT at JTC and her and the Audiologist there are going to coordinate with our Audiologist at UCLA to get the testing done. Apparently we needed more unaided testing. We have had 2 other tests done and it's still the same conclusion, as far as they have been telling me. She needs the CIs. Now whether she needs two is what Nathan and I are waiting on. I am hoping that if she does, then we won't have to wait a year for the other one. I am hoping that they will approve both at the same time.
We have another Audiology appointment this Wednesday and Carlen said that she is meeting with the implant team that morning and that she is going to bring up Ella at the meeting. We are hoping for good news. We are hoping that they are going to say that the tests are sufficient enough to approve her for the surgery. We all know she needs it, it's just getting the team to agree with us. I am very anxious for Wednesday to come. I just hate sitting her knowing that there is something out there that can help her hear and we have to wait for it. It's right there and there is nothing we can do to get it. 
In other news, we are leaving this Thursday night for Florida with my parents. I can't wait! I know the kids are going to love it and Ella has never been to the beach so I am curious to see how she reacts. We are also planning to go to Disney World while we are there. We went here in Ca to Disneyland but it was a bust because it rained most of the day so we left early. I know Shaun and Dakota are going to love it. Also Dakota and Shaun are going to go back to Va with my parents for the summer. I am looking forward to it. :) But I know that I will miss them. It's going to be quiet around here, but I think I will get a lot done. I also won't have to worry about finding someone to watch them during Ella's appointments. Thanks Mom and Dad. I love you :)
