  1. Sorry for posting twice! The post is about our Mother's Day.

  2. Thanks Ellen! Mine is #7 about our IEP meeting how well it went.

  3. Dexter's at #11 this week. We're at the stage where 'wheelchair' is no longer a dirty word. We've gotten used to the concept, and see the freedom and possibilities it brings. Thanks, Ellen. Happy weekend.

  4. Thank you for hosting this party! Looking forward to reading some new blogs.

  5. I've never participated in this linkup before -- thanks! Nice to read other people's stories too.

  6. My post is about me most likely getting hearing aids and being VERY NERVOUS!!!

    1. Hi Meredith,
      I have hearing loss, wear a hearing aid and use an FM system in school. I'm unable to comment on your blog, so I hope you will see this. I'm not sure how old you are but if you are still in school, an FM system is very helpful along with hearing aids. I was 5 when I got mine so I really was not nervous. Considering you are at Boston Children's, I'm sure the audiologist will walk through it all with you. It can feel really weird at first but you get used to it after a while. I have a Behind the Ear hearing aid with a soft mold. I strongly recommend a soft mold. Socially you will get questions and stares, but a strong group of friends come in handy. For me, saying "It helps me hear, I have hearing loss." and (for the FM) "The teacher wears it to send sound right to my hearing aid." Educationally, I am assuming based on your other disabilities, you have a 504 plan or IEP. If you get an FM that will be on there. I recommend also getting "preferential/close to front or instruction seating"(how it is listed in my 504). If you have any questions, reply below. Good Luck! :)

  7. I had to submit mine twice just FYI


Thanks for sharing!
