For all of you that were wondering, Samuel is doing really well. His eardrum is sitting right were it needs to be and is working really well. However, now Samuel can hear Andreas and I whisper, so we have no way of communicating behind his back. We might have to learn a third language just between us. Samuel is beyond thrilled to be able to hear without his hearing aide in his left ear. He wants the other ear done now.
We were suppose to keep this kid calm and collected for two weeks...good luck! Andreas said he would rather shoot himself in the foot than have to keep Sam calm for two weeks. Our active boy is on the move and has a new lease on life.
|This is Sam's cool attitude walk...he thinks he is the stuff!|
Below is a pic of some friends and the kids eating and doing crafts. This was one of my attempts to keep Sam calm (you can tell he still had his head wrap on in this pic). It worked for a little while and we all had great fun being creative.
