Allison's new implant

I thought I would give an update on how Allison is doing with the new implant. She is now putting it on in the morning and will at least do the 15-20 min of therapy with it on. She complains that she cannot hear out of that side, but we are telling her that it will come. I guess it is a good thing she does not remember her 1st attempts at hearing, if she did, she probably would not have wanted the 2nd side done.
There is a commercial for a drink for kids( for the life of me I cannot remember what it is, maybe when I explain the commercial someone can help me). The mom and girl are in the grocery store, the mom is going through the list of things they need to get. "We need broccoli", the girl says, "I don't like broccoli", "we need chicken" "I don't like chicken". Allison has seen this commercial several times, so she knows what the girl says. Allison was sitting with her back to the TV and the commercial came on, Allison listened to it and told me what the girl was going to say before it was said. I never thought I would be so happy that my child could tell me word for word what a commercial was about. Thank you, Allison for the daily reminders that Daddy and Mommy made the right decision for you. :-)

You definitley made a great decision for your daughter. It is such a miracle that technology like C.I's are here for our children so they can learn how to talk. I find myself at times telling Makenzie, "Cn you just be quiet for five seconds," then I just have to laugh because she CAN talk my ear off and I love it!
