It does bugs me that Cory is not "hearing" at the pool daily and kids try to talk to him but of course, once they realized ...it singled him out. When we were at the Waterslides, we often had to chase him to get his attention..I can see my husband's frustrations. I am used to it..but there are two of us now that he has to chase after. LOL. My husband did at one time, comments that I'm so lucky that I can't "hear" all that noises, "lucky you.." he says.
I did realized the difference, after a swim, I would put my aids back on and got startled by all the noises at the pool. It's louder than I realized...did I really missed out? yes and no..
I got to thinking about Cory..is that fair? I know that one mom has mentioned about the food saver and swim cap..check out this video.
Sean doesn't want Cory to wear a swim cap.."Over my dead body.." he says.
I have to admit..I do feel the same way..butttttttttt he is missing out the essential part of his environment!
So my search is on...I came upon this website. I am willing to let him wear this! Your feedbacks would be greatly appreciated! http://www.allstarcanada.ca/contents/en-us/d24.html
He can with Nucleus 5..so it's water resistant more than other models..so add that to swim head band? How bad could this be? I planned to ask the audiologist at the hospital about it...just to see how they feel.
