Last Day :)
This morning has been a whirlwind. Charlie threw up again last night at midnight, the exact time he did the night before. It was after being off of feeds for hours so I haven’t really found a connection yet. We’ll see what tonight brings. This morning we went up to the audiology department for 2 hours to program the implant. He slept the whole time so the audiologist programmed it to average comfort zones. We are supposed to experiment with 3 different programs and different volumes over the next two weeks and meet with him to reprogram. The process usually takes 6 months to find the correct program with a healthy person so Jason thinks Charlie could take a year to find the right parameters and teach his brain to recognize it. We are looking to be leaving around 1:00 this afternoon. I will definitely keep posting about our transition however it will be less frequent so please be patient while we figure out our new normal. Thanks again for everyone’s support and love. We rely on it daily!!!
