It's finished!!! I finished the model that I've been working on for the last several months.
Now I can send it back to Carla so she take pictures. She's already published the chart and is offering it for $10.
Mariah had her 7 month follow up on her hearing today. The problem is definitely congenital and called otosclerosis. One of the bones in her middle ear (and they can't tell which one at this point) does not move. She has lost 20% hearing of the low frequencies in her left ear and 50% of all frequencies in her right ear. There is a surgery that can be done to correct it, but one of the outcomes is a very real possibility that instead of correcting the problem she will be totally deaf. Not a good option at this point in time. We go back in January for another test and to fit her for a hearing aid in her right ear. If the left ear stays the same, that's that. If there is a change for the worse, they will fit her for the left ear also.
I worked out with the personal trainer again this morning. He made me do arm weights and dumbbells and then 30 minutes on the treadmill. My arms are going to fall off!! On a brighter note, I lost 2 lbs. last week. Only 64 more to go by New Year's!! He set me up with a really good workout routine and now I'm on my own until October.
Well, off to work on Mariah's coffee cup!
And how was YOUR day?
