That's right - bring it on, summer! No anxiety this year. :) Two years in, I think I'm really getting the hang of being a CI mom! We had a very successful day of swimming over the weekend and Sophie had a blast. I think these pics say it all:
Sophie was able to swim, splash around with her cousins, and even go underwater while HEARING all of the sounds around her because we "waterproofed" her implant. We put one of her back-up CIs in a plastic bag and had her wear a swim cap on top to keep it secure and provide protection. Of course, my husband is in the process of brainstorming, fine-tuning, and perfecting this method (as he does with everything), but it worked wonders!
