We always knew this was going to be boring. With the surgery behind us, we are now waiting and waiting and waiting. Alice gets the implant to play with on Friday, but “switch on” isn’t until the start of April. The scar is healing to invisible, she’s had the surgical sign off, so we are now in limbo. It’s hard explaining to everyone that despite the surgery, she is actually more deaf today than she was a couple of weeks ago.
Still there’s plenty to organise, Christopher Place sessions, CICS meet up at the end of April, school (can you believe she’s down to start in 6 months time) and even more therapy. The fun starts here and we’re already organising toys and games for the miraculous days to come.
