I picked up Nolan's 5th set of earmolds on Tuesday. I have a feeling Emtech (earmold company) is regretting their re-make policy by now! The wings are gone, but now there is a gap between the mold and the side of his ear. Darn! We'll be going back on the 29th for new impressions- earmold set number six. Hopefully we'll get a better set this time! In the meantime, I'm having some trouble keeping his aids in (especially the left one). Thank goodness for pilot caps.
The weather was rather miserable (in the teens with high winds), so I didn't venture over to the hospital for the genetics bloodwork. Instead, I will do it the morning of the 27th, since I have to go up for an ENT clinic on that day. Nolan has had fluid in his ears since January 9th (at least) and has had one infection. Hopefully the infection is gone (I'm pretty sure it is) and I hope the fluid is, too!
So the remaining schedule for this week and next is:
Today (the 20th): Speech Therapy and playgroup (I didn't make playgroup)!
Thursday (21st): Pediatrician appointment (check ears) and MOPS
Friday (22nd): Speech Therapy
The weekend: Absolutely NO appointments! Yay!
Monday the 25th: Speech Therapy and EI wrap-up meeting to put Matthew's IFSP into place.
Wednesday the 27th: ENT appointment and genetics bloodwork
Friday the 29th: Earmolds!
