When you look at my page this week you definitely know what was going on. It consumed our week. Matthew had his Cochlear implant surgery on April 14th (a very long awaited day). The surgery went great, but that first day was rough. The anaesthesia did a number on him. But it only took him a few days to get back to normal. I don't even think he'll have a scar. May 11th is the big day where we'll get the external processor and they'll turn it on.

Here's a little more info on his hearing if you are interested, if not just skip all this babbling and take a peek at my page below. He wasn't getting any benefit from hearing aids in his right ear (the ear they implanted). With a hearing aid in his left ear he's in the moderate to severe range, but he's still picking up and understanding some English, which is quite amazing for what he's getting in just one ear. We are really hoping and thinking that getting some sound into that right ear is going to do some amazing things for this little boy. I'm excited to see what the next few months will bring for him.

And on a sweet little note (which deserves it's own page), when Matthew was in the midst of being sick he rolled over grabbed my hand and gave me the biggest smile ever. He really is the sweetest little boy ever.

Oh and I thought I would show you this. I finished theis April page for the 2016 Calendar I'm making for my mom (minus the missing picture from my sis). I'm loving this challenge over at Scrap Orchard. By the end of the year I'll have a calendar ready to print. Check out the challenge here.

How's Matthew adjusting to his implant? My supervisor's son also has implants. He got them when he was very young (he's about 8 now).

Don't know how much experience you have with the implants, but just a head's up. My supervisor recently had a hard time with his insurance company because he was trying to get the implants updated(the implants were several years old. The battery of one of the earpieces died and his son was having a hard time hearing on the one side. It wasn't until the second earpiece stopped working that the insurance finally approved the upgrade. Hopefully, you don't run into the situation :)
