The old set-up: unorganized.
In addition, the number of "accessories" that go with Nolan have increased over the past year. We used to just have the hearing aid case and a Dry and Store (hearing aid dryer). Now we have the C-Pap machine and various masks (we're supposed to rotate to prevent facial deformity), otoscope (for monitoring ear infections), and we will be adding some equipment and supplies for g-tube care.
Things were spread out all over the house. His glasses and hearing aids were downstairs on top of a bookcase, the C-Pap was in his room, and the new equipment coming in March would have to go somewhere, too. I was delighted to find a set of stacking cubes for only $10 the other day - and the cubes have holes (which means that electrical cords can be threaded through the back).
Deep sigh of organized contentment.
The cubes work perfectly, and I will make (or find) a small net to stretch across the C-Pap machine cube to keep it securely in place. It is less likely to slide inside of the cube, though, which is a relief. I have kept the Dry and Store downstairs on top of the bookshelf until I can pick up a power strip to handle the extra cords. In the meantime, though, I have the C-Pap case, masks, machine, hearing aid case, and other things (syringes/otoscope/glasses case) nicely organized in the cubes.
Now, if only I could get the playroom organized!
