Trey's Cochlear Implant has vanished into a black hole....

that's the only theory I can come up with. I'm not giving up yet, but I'm close to chucking all the small toys we have and starting from scratch (so that maybe we'll unearth the CI). The good news is that when Em got her bilateral, she received 2 Harmony processors, so I had Trey's audiologist program her old Auria for Trey. It meant finding a new ear piece, a new head piece, and getting a new ear mold made, but at least we're up and running again.

We also found out today that Rob's place of employment is changing insurance companies. I instantly got that worried feeling in the pit of my stomach. I know what our old company would (and would not cover). So, I got online and it looks like they cover binaural implants (just thinking ahead to the future for the other two with implants, and Jake who will probably wind up with at least one at some point). Big sigh of relief!!!! So now I can not think about insurance, and go back to rooting through piles of stuff for Trey's implant. FUN FUN FUN-LOL!!!

Trey is downstairs playing Jake's toy electric guitar. Why, oh why give my children a loud, electric guitar? Although it goes nicely with the two keyboards they received last year!
