At 5 AM, I loaded three very sleepy and disoriented children in the car and we headed to Birmingham. The Hear Center at Children's Hospital has been a great experience for us and our answer to prayer. Maggie finally got her bone conduction hearing aid this morning and it has been like watching a miracle. The headband that she got today is too small and does not fit her right. I have already made a pattern to sew her some cute headbands that will fit and be more stylish. She doesn't seem to mind the headband and so far leaves it a lone. She cried right when we put it on her and then she was very quite, taking it all in.
What a miracle ! My baby can now hear !! Amazing !!
I can already tell a big difference in her interaction with me. Maggie is really looking at my face more and reacting to sounds. She's even saying m-m-m a lot.
Some things she heard for the first time today are : Charlie barking, the water running, the boys playing football in the front yard, lots of I love you's, every song I could think of to sing to her and her daddy's voice on the phone.
