The Boy's oncologist said that the audiologist is full of baloney and that yes, they would modify the chemo because of its effect on his hearing and yes, The Boy would get some sort of assistive devices as he needs.
Perhaps they just wouldn't do anything like cochlear implants until 18 months off treatment.
Musical Daddy told me that rather than get angry with the audiologist, we should let her know what the doctor said. That way, she could change what she says to other patients and they would benefit.
I like how he and I keep each other sane.
Anyhow, while we still need to monitor his hearing, which will be done frequently now, we need to worry less about having a 3 year old who can't hear.
Another issue: the physical therapist likes to have David take the stairs and do a lot of physical activity. He gets lots of bruises, particularly with low platelets. And he is two, so he falls. Today he fell a few steps. Earlier, he also tripped over the stroller while at the center. The bruises are rather unattractive. And worrisome. Not really--just annoying.
Speaking of platelets, he is still not ready for chemo, although he isn't scheduled until Thursday. Report to the center and see how the counts are, and...he will or he won't.
