Here we are at Disney's California Adventure where we had a few hours to play in the park with my son, Trevor. He will be on the Disney Cruise Line on the Magic for 6 months. So if you happen to be going on a cruise and end up on the Magic look for Trevor as Entertainment Host.
Behind us is Hollywood Tower of Terror as Amanda poses with Trevor. In the next photo is Amanda's brother, Joseph, her dad, Gonzálo, me, Trevor and Amanda in front.
It was Amanda's first visit to Disneyland and California Adventure since her CI was activated 2 months ago. She still can't identify any sounds but knows she hears "something." If it's turned up a little too loud, she gets twitching. If it's turned down to avoid the twitching, she hears soft sounds. Sigh.
Her next mapping is November 14th and an Advanced Bionics audiologist will again be in attendance to see if she can help figure out why the twitching is still present, why Amanda can't hear her own voice and to assist in finding an appropriate map.
Amanda's surgeon has authorized an xray of her head to see what's going on in there (smile) so as soon as we hear from radiology we'll get that scheduled.
Amanda continues to enjoy hearing whatever it is that she's hearing, wears her processor faithfully and has a positive attitude about the whole thing.
