A couple days ago, one of the cables on Lilia’s cochlear implant broke and I didn’t have a spare. This happened on the weekend, so although I faxed an order to the Cochlear Company in Tokyo yesterday, it probably won’t get here till the day after tomorrow. Anyway, Lilia went to school with just a hearing aid in one ear. Her teacher complained that, without the cochlear implant, Lilia just spaced out all day. Hey, it’s a deaf school! Aren’t they supposed to know how to teach kids who can’t hear????!
