Journey to Baha

BAHA has gotten the green light!

Posted on: February 16, 2009

It’s an exciting day around here. We’ve just returned from the ENT where we started the ball rolling on Reed’s BAHA surgery. Turns out my neurotic need to have all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed when he was younger has come in handy. His CT from several years ago was what put us over the top for a decision today. His CT was normal, so his hearing would likely be helped by the implant. I filled out the surgical boarding forms in the office and now we just have to wait for insurance approval and an OR date!

Reed was so excited when the Dr. said he’d be a candidate for one, he was lobbying to get it done today! He apparently thought we were there to get it done, not ask about it. He was looking around the room for the drill, wondering if he’d be home in time for lunch. He was quite disappointed when I told him it probably wouldn’t be for at least a few weeks. I’m not sure how long to expect the approval process to take, but it would be great if he could be activated before Daddy takes the boys on their trip to New York City in September. Before school starts after Labor Day would be even better.
