February looks like it's gearing up to be a month of appointments; Connor will have an audiology, dental and neurology appointment, and Eden will have a dental appointment and, once I get it set up, her annual well-check visit as well. So we'll be plenty busy in the next few weeks.
Connor's due for a new pair of hearing aids; his current ones are five years old and are starting to drain batteries faster and faster. Hearing aids have changed a lot in the past few years, so it will interesting to see what he ends up with. I'm curious to see what color he'll pick out if he has a choice; he pretty consistently chooses orange and blue for his AFOs, so we'll see if he follows that trend again for his hearing aids.
I'm fine with whatever color so long as they stand out against our wood floors. Every once in a while if I get lazy and leave them on the coffee table when I take them out for Connor's nap, one of the cats thinks they make a great toy and runs off with them. So I need something high contrast to find them under whatever piece of furniture they've been shoved underneath by a little kitty paw.
Anyway, hopefully whatever hearing aids the audiologist recommends will be as robust as these have proved to be over the years. They've been dropped, thrown up on, chewed on by a cat and a teething toddler, and thrown up on, among other things. I'm still amazed they've lasted this long!
