We now have to prepare for the Surgery, get his fitness checks done, blood and xrays have to be done and make sure that he is in the best health on the big day..

Aarav is walking!!!!

At 1.5 year old, Aarav was still not walking independently. I had started worrying!!
I had started wondering if his ear problem had anything to do with him not being able to walk.. without any evidence of course, but couldn't help it.
 
I read more than a dozen baby sites to gather milestones information.
According to few websites, Aarav should have been walking months ago.. (Yikes!!!)
Few sites said its ok to highlight it to the doc if he still doesn't walk by now... (Ok I need to meet Aarav's doc soon!!!) 
Some even said its ok to wait till he's 2!! (Thank you!!!!)


Assuming (more like hoping wishing praying) that the ones who said its ok till he is 2 years old are correct, I thought I could give him some more time.. (at least till his next doc appointment that was on this 21st.. more on that soon)
But lo and behold!!
Last Friday evening, we were having a lazy evening. Aarav was sitting in my lap, just relaxing.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, he just stood up, and magically started walking!!!
He had been cruising for months (6+ mnths) now.. But 'walking' was only by holding on to a finger or pushing his trike..
And almost everytime he fell and bumped into something or fell into something.. (remember he fell in the toilet pot???)
So after months of unsuccessful attempts, finally, Aarav got it!!! Friday was a big pleasant surprise. 
Now he wants to walk allllll the time.. He even gets up in the middle of the night and starts walking.. (I just hope he keeps his eyes open because mine arent...at least till he bullies me awake) 
Even falling and bumping into things is not stopping him now !!
Yay!!!I am Happy!!

More good news...

Aarav's scans have been done and they have come out favorable. Aarav can now be considered as a candidate for the Cochlear implant. Whev!!!
Had there been problems in the scans, related to the Cochleas, the implications were not good. We were desperately waiting for the results . We even tried to search the scans for the Cochlea. As neither Kaustubh nor I have any knowledge about how to read scans, we saw something more like the silhouette of a bunny rabbit or a snail with long ears... :-P
The doctors then told us that Cochleas are exactly how they are supposed to be and that they have the right amount of twists and turns and are well suited for an implant.
The Neptune has been booked, now the next steps are to get Aarav  vaccinated and ready for surgery... only a few weeks more to wait till Aarav enters the hearing world...
For the first time in 5 weeks, the birds are chirping, and the breeze is alive, sugar is sweet again and the sun shines through the tempest...
Kaustubh and I are actually "Happy" again!! Its a beautiful feeling.
Aarav 's Hearing Journey, now, has began...
