2nd Mapping

On the way back from mapping yesterday, we stopped for lunch at McDonalds (his choice). As soon as they slid the glass back to pass over drinks, Gage shouted "Um, ma'am, excuse me, ma'am? Look, I can hear now!!!" I gave her the info she needed to understand what he was talking about and the lovely Mickey D's crew gave us a big ole cheer and a 'congratulations, we're so happy for you!" He's a bit of a bragger with those new black processors, but he's so proud!

This was the scene late yesterday afternoon........he was exhausted. He took a well deserved 1 1/2 hour listening break at the end of the day.


Today we went for his second mapping and this was his face....as long as he was winning. He was in a heated battle with Emily (an audiologist) during some porcupine game.




And this was his face when he was not winning.






And this is what I did when we got home!!! I made this.........




into this...........
Thanks Cochlear for all the stuff, I had already combined B's two ears w/Gage's one a couple of years ago, but now I had to take it a step farther and break it down again w/the additional two new ears. Whew!



And because I can't leave out the Queen, she loves to take pictures....of her baby's clothes and of herself!!

Great to know that your experience with cochlear implantation has been extremely happy.Will certainly pass this information on to Hivashini's Parents. It would certainly serve as a morale booster.
Hivashini (in India)is a one year two month old baby girl who is born deaf. Doctors have recommended Cochlear implantation for her. Her parents coming from low income strata are having difficulties raising adequate funds for it. Have started an online initiative towards the same.
