I am so thankful for cochlear implants! They are already giving Drew the ability to hear things he couldn't just a few days ago. But that doesn't mean that I don't feel sad sometimes that Drew is going to wear these the remainder of his life. Except at night. (What if there is a fire?) Except at the pool. (How am I going to tell him to stop splashing his sister?) And, oh how I already dread the other kids making fun of the fact that he looks different while on recess.
Or maybe he won't have to wear these the rest of his life? Check out this article.
