How has living with medical equipment changed your life? Is it something you've gotten used to?

I know we have so much, from AFO's to huge travel tanks. I remember feeling so sad each time we got more equipment, but I don't know if I remember how to live without it all now.

I technically live with medical equipment, but I don't really consider it that way... I guess it's sort of equipment lite, LOL. It tends to catch me in odd ways out of the blue though, like when I was in Target the other day, I passed the display of sandals and wanted to buy for the boys, then I remembered Danny's Pollywogs and realized there's no way they would work with sandals.

As for his CIs, they've just become a way of life. I can't imagine having a baby without them - heck, when I'm out with a friend and her 8 month old and I hear a beep, I automatically look at the girl's head and start searching for her headpiece until I clue in. I'd love to be without them, but just can't remember what it was like with Eric raising a toddler with normal hearing.

don't have any other then contacts if that counts! lol

The only time it sucks is when they bother her. I have to stop her from rubbing her eyes, always have saline and contact case with me. Sometimes I have to pin her down and her eye lids are swollen so getting them out is hard at times. Other times its no big deal

I'd say if CIs count than contacts count too - it's all stuff that most babies don't have, and we all have to put up with. I couldn't imagine having to wrestle one of my boys into contacts!
