Getting the Most Out of Summer
Our regular computer is down again, this time for the count. In the meantime, I will be posting from the laptop, which is rather temperamental. If my posts in the coming days are rather sporadic, bear with me. The technical difficulties should be resolved soon!
Nolan's ear seems to be drying out, which is good news. He'll be on "pink medicine" (Amoxicillin) for another 5 days, along with the dreaded ear drops. I've been leaving his hearing aids out to allow his ear canals access to fresh air. This helps with the moisture issues, but also results in lots of shouting and jumping around to get Nolan's attention (we sign to him in these situations, but we have to get his attention first). Hopefully we'll be back to full-time aid wearing very shortly.
With only two (TWO!) weeks left of summer before school starts, we have been visiting local hiking trails and pools. This has resulted in several injuries on my part (did you know slate is very slippery when wet?) and two very happy kids. Nolan is quite pleased to go anywhere there is water, though we are being very careful about his head/ears getting wet. Luckily he is not a fan of getting water up his nose, which means that his head stays very dry.
I'll update again when we get any news (namely, a certain sleep study report), but until then, we're off playing in the summer sunshine!
