Update on My Daughter's New Cochlear Implant

Early last year we started investigating the idea of adding a second cochlear implant because we were having issues with my daughter being able to hear us when we were talking to her.  She was having a hard time hearing when there was a bunch of back ground noise and while we would try to carry on a conversation in the car.  As a mom this bothered me because she is old enough to start driving.  In fact, she recently started working on her Drivers Education packet and we wanted to make sure that she could adequately hear the other cars, motorcycles, and things going on around her while she is operating a motor vehicle.  My daughter had surgery in June and had her second implant activated in early July.  Things were looking good but it has been a very slow process.

It has been over 9 months since my daughter had her surgery and I wanted to share an update.  I wish her progress would have been better at this point but things are slowly progressing.  After her appointment, my daughter will have to graducally increase the levels on her device and we will continue to monitor her progress.  Continue reading about her journey with her second cochlear implant at Uplifting Families.
