Insurance Approved Jake’s 2nd CI

After a hard summer of losing another 20 db in hearing, Jake is ready for his 2nd CI. We just found out yesterday and we are so very excited. It is frustrating to Jake to not be able to hear out of one ear. He melted down in the grocery store onSaveInputImage(3)e day because he was having such a hard time hearing us talk. I know that having this 2nd CI is going to help him. Next Friday, the 16th, he will go in for surgery.

Getting Ready for Friday!

Today as Sammie changed her hearing aid battery, I thought, “this will be the last time she will do that!” The past year has been amazing for her. She can hear so many things that we take for granted. We are very excited for her second implant. I think having some hearing balance will help a lot.

It will be our 3rd implant surgery in a year, between her and Jake. So we are going to be prepared. I will have tons of ice cream, yogurts, and soft foods. Will stock up on ibuprofen, movies, and crafts.
