To HEAR or Not to HEAR...That is the question!

Parker saw another Audiologist yesterday to fit him for new ear molds. We are getting closer and closer to getting the Cochlear Implant! Well thats if insurance doesn't stop us! We are having more difficulties with stupid insurance! We are having to change ALL of his doctors again! This is the third time this has happened. Turns out the "branch" of insurance we have been using and all of the wonderful doctors and cochlear implant specialists weren't being covered! The insurance company were the ones who referred us to these doctors!!! So frustrating. Now we are trying to stay with the same "team" we have come up with.

Anyways... Parker has been wearing his hearing aids 24/7 like we were instructed. He doesn't mind them, but certainly doesn't love them. Any chance he gets to yank them out...he does! He doesn't "hear" anything with the hearing aids. The reason he has to wear them is because the do stimulate his auditory nerve, which will help when he gets the implant. Also, he has to wear the for insurance purposes. We have to "prove" to them that he isn't benefiting anything from them. Again...stupid insurance!! Here are some pictures of him with his hearing aids or what I like to call them his "jewelry".
