A new hearing aid is on its way...

We have yet to find the left hearing aid that has been missing for about two weeks now.... So, yesterday at the audiologist we had new earmold impressions made and also ordered the replacement aid. Thank goodness for Early Intervention that will help pay for the new hearing aid, because our insurance doesn't cover them.

Ethan should have his new earmolds and the new hearing aid in about two weeks. We've all noticed a huge difference since he has lost the one. He isn't nearly as responsive or "talkative." Plus, we've had to go back to wearing hats, not only because we can't lose the only one we've got, but because he is constantly pulling the right one out. I'm guessing that it must be pretty weird to only hear on one side since he's been aided bilaterally for so long, but that is just my guess.
