I took Allison for a CI checkup and let me tell you, it was wonderful. I use to dread these appointments, I just didn't want to hear any bad news, especially after having her right ear done and Allison not progressing with it. There was many times when I thought we had put her through a major surgery for nothing, she would never hear with the right implant and we would have to be happy with the gain she had made with the left. But I was wrong, very wrong! According to the testing this past week......her right side is actually doing better then the left.
At 20 dB she is hearing 100% word recognition( right ear) vs 88% ( left ear)
She is hearing 15-25 dB across the board.
We don't have to go back for 1 year!! Life is good, life is normal. YAY!!!
