Mumma Bear and Cannon.  I have been following Cannon for quite a while now and have never piped in until now.  Our son, Wyatt got hearing aides for the first time when he was about 18 months old.... similar health background to yours... Stage IV NB, dx. 4 mths, etc.  Anyhow, he is now almost 7.  It was definitely a change to get used to having things in his ears... but he got used to them.  A few hours a day at a time... now he is putting them in himself and wearing them all day.  A fun thing he likes to say as if it is like putting Play Doh in his ears... it looks like it and feels a little like it. (They usually let him play with some of the extra play doh stuff while they are doing it).  I think the mold making only takes a few minutes... first time is always hard, but gets easier.  Wyatt also likes to pick out the colors he wants his mold to be.  Some like them clear so less noticeable, but we leave it up to Wyatt and he usually chooses three colors and gets excited to change them every 3-6 months.  His friends in Kdgtn said they look cool and look like melted crayons:)  If you ever want to chat about the hearing aide stuff or any of the other stuff... feel free to contact us:)
Take care and best of luck with the molds!

Melissa,

I read every one of your posts.   I love how you give us many of the serious details ..... and then interject bits of humor to make me smile.  ALL people need some humor .... that's what keeps us sane!  

Sending positive healing thoughts to Cannon.....

AND "good vibrations" and prayers to you, Mumma Bear.   You are  a Spectacular Mum.   I know that in my heart, even though I never met you.   Mike hit the jackpot when he met you (I know this will make Mike smile.....he knows it's true).

Take a DEEP breath Melissa ..... one day at a time....

Love & A Warm Aloha,

Carol

Dear Lord:

Please protect Cannon and keep him healthy. Also continue to give his parents strength. He is a beacon of hope and courage for all of us and we pray that you spare him from any more pain or health issues. Please let him live a normal and long life with good health and happiness.

Amen

Melissa, I love hearing about your happy days. They are well-deserved and you obviously are making the most of them. I wish I was right there to enjoy the smells of your house and eat some of the shephard's pie (haven't had that in ages). It warms my heart that Cannon is enjoying life and not confined to a hospital room and that your family is in a happy place. Thank you for sharing.
XOXO, Diana

This is for Michael! I went to work today inadvertently wearing a pink top! I weird coworker is all decked out in pink! She says oh I'm so glad you wore pink today for breast cancer awareness. I didn't! I went home at 10am break and changed my top to the closest I had to gold!!! People don't have a clue or any awareness so sad!!! I'm going to rally here in my home town of northboro ma for childhood cancer awareness! God bless you and your family and all the other children fighting this battle! I have my brother with me who is stage 4 lung cancer I see what treatment is doing to him and can't imagine what cannon and other children are going through. Prayers for all of you!

So proud of you and your mission to get the word out about the lack of funding/attention paid to pediatric cancers. You have been a busy lady! I would like to say that Arran DID hold my hand when I was watching him. :-) It took 7 hours to get to that point, but he warmed up to me eventually. HA HA. Hugs and kisses to all of the Wiggins clan.
