70% of the time! Yes, we are making progress each time.
He has a BIG day coming up on the 19th when he will have a sedated MRI and catscan and genetic testing and eye check and ABS to test for his hearing and Renal ultrsound ALL IN THE SAME MORNING! I am really excited to see just what he has in there for an ear canal and cochlea and all that...and I learned about a little device they can put on the outside of the 'bad' ear to restore hearing, called a baha, I think. Even if he doesn't have the proper 'inner workings' if I understood it right. So that's exciting :)
He was SO happy to get home and get back to his pool! He's also getting better about letting me comfort him somewhat, and not putting his arms out to anyone and everyone! Baby steps. :)
I am learning with him that he needs to LEARN what love is and not only HOW to love but how to RECIEVE love. Its completely new to him. He has never had anyone there to love him. To comfort him. From the day he was born he was 'alone'... left to fend for himself, with no nurturing.
I'm surprised he's as sweet and gentle as he is. (although I did see him 'head butt' Michael the other day :)
But hey, we ALL feel like doing THAT sometimes!
(just kidding of course, Michael is my big sweetie) ;) ;)
