Just great.

Emmi is not exactly gentle with her processor for her cochlear implants. Try telling a four-year-old with the vocab and social development of a two-year-old to be careful because the things on her shoulder are several thousand dollars a piece. Sure there is accidental coverage, but it covers next to nothing. You get one replacement. Ever. For one part. So you can't waste it on let's say, the coil, because what happens when you loose the actual processor. The $500 coil will seem like small potatoes then. Problem is, the coil is a magnet. One that likes to get stuck to random objects. It won't be until I see Emmi streak by with a cable dangling behind her that I know there is a problem. You ask her where the missing piece is, and she will bring you things like books. Very helpful.

At 5:30 a coil went missing. Actually two of them. We found one within minutes. Three hours later, we still have not found the other. I have pretty much resolved that we will be buying a new one and having it over-nighted to us. Fantastic.

I hope that by now you've found that coil. It's always been my fear that she'll drop one and one of the dogs will snap it up, thinking it's a nice chocolate cookie.

I hope you find Emmi's coil. If not once you order the new one you probably will. HAHA

That really blows, I hope you find it before you order a new one. One can hope, right?
