Update on Elijah's Right Ear!
Well, Elijah is still complaining that his right ear is bugging him. I made an appointment for January 9th with his audiologist. She suggested I change out controllers so I put his right controller on his left ear and his left on his right ear. This all happened on Monday and then today I noticed once again that his right ear coil was off. He never lets it dangle so I asked him to put it back on and asked him why he had it off. At first he was defensive and said he didn't know. I asked him again and he said it was bugging him. So we are back where we started! We are going to start by doing whole new MAPs on both ears and see what happens after that. I am just so glad he has his left ear to rely on when his right ear is bugging him!
