My girlfriends in the neighborhood know that I'm pretty obsessive about Christian's CI at the park. We have learned to take it off before he goes on any plastic slides. He's been very helpful "handing" it to me (sometimes he throws it at me), when I ask him to take it off before he takes a turn going down. My friends just laugh with me (ok at me) as I scold my little guy for not sharing the slides or taking turns...and remind me "Um, Tina, you're holding his CI. He can't hear you".
A couple of Moms on various message boards (and Elizabeth from Cochlear Implant Online) have suggested using dryer sheets to combat the static that could possibly wipe out Christian's CI. I tried it yesterday, and I think I need to find a different fragrance...the Bounce Febreeze Citrus and Light scent SERIOUSLY clashes with my Jo Malone White Jasmine and Mint.
