Nik's audiology appt.

Warren took Nik to his appointment today.  I'll get to the point.  Bad news is there is NO WAY possible to insure the current implant.  Long story for sure.  Put it this way, at one time we had three implants.  The one he has on his head is the one that was assumed lost in the woods.  Then, it was found but only after it had been written as a loss and replaced.  Hence, no more records of the serial #.  So, can not be insured.  Calling AB and seeing if there is any way possible around this mess as it is an unique case.  IF this one is ever lost, the replacement is around $8,000.  As you can see, we're trying everything possible to get insurance for it.  Especially, at this house. 

Alright, now for the best news.  They are doing pre-qualifications for a SECOND IMPLANT!!!!  I can not tell you how excited I am for Nik.  We should pre-qualify and it is a process and no, don't know how long.  Just know it is a step in the right direction.  Poor kid has literally been begging for a second implant for months now.  Months.  He got re-mapped today on the current implant as well.  Very happy as this can be a huge difference in Nik's life & future.  Just had to share this.  


More going on but will share once home & when there is more time to write.  Oh, & not thunder outside.  Enjoy your week everyone.  I know we will.  We'll probably write a post tomorrow & then nothing else until Sunday.  Going to try to take lots of pictures and hope to see some great things and do some great things.
