Good news!! Alexander has a surgery date for implants on both ears!!
Honestly we are still considering whether or not to have both ears done or if it is better to have a hearing aid and an implant. Any thoughts?
- psych evaluation for both baby and parents (11/6/08)
- speech eval (11/10/08)
- auditory eval (11/25/08)
- sound booth test (11/25/08)
- baby physical (not scheduled yet)
Activation day (when they activate the implants) is within 4-6 weeks after the surgery. So he will be able to hear for his first birthday!!!
This is the outer device: the processor and microphone. He still has his hearing aids on so normally there is no ear mold, it just sits on his ear.
