Can You Hear Me Now?

Ongoing saga with Eli's hearing. Not good news from the specialist. Eli's latest hearing test shows that he has some nerve damage, called a 'Sensorineural' hearing loss. That pretty much means that the loss is permanent and he needs a hearing aid in his left ear. Bummer :(

Anyway, just as I thought I was beginning to feel partially human again, some relentless nausea has resurfaced and I found myself losing my lunch. Ewww. And something else really weird is I seem to have come down with a some affliction termed 'Horribly-Terribly-Cranky-For-No-Apparent-Reason-itis'. I've Googled it, looked it up in my pregnancy books and have almost called the OB about it. Believe me, it's no fun. Hopefully, with the ringing in of my second trimester, that will go away, along with the nausea.

I haven't updated on my boss lately. He's doing incredible! He was taken off the ventilator quite a while ago and he's now up and walking around the Rehab-Unit of the hospital. He's expected to be there through this next week, and then discharged HOME! Wow. Granted, he's got a long way to go in terms of recovery from his TBI (traumatic brain injury) but things are looking up...especially considering his accident was just three weeks ago.

I'm going to run and make myself a decaf-sugar free mocha latte...I need to kick my puffy ankles up and watch some tv.
