We finally got Maggie's hearing aid back last Wednesday, only to quickly find out it is still broken. She has not been able to "hear" for over three weeks ( maybe longer) and her language has gone way,way,way down. I am struggling with feeling very frustrated ! And, the engineers in Switzerland don't know how to fix it. They know there is a problem with their bone conduction hearing aids, but can't seem to figure out the solution. The company is making new hearing aids that hopefully will work, but they won't be available until September.
So, we are heading to Birmingham on Tuesday to try a loaner hearing aid on a metal headband. Please pray that it will fit her head ( they only have one and it is not a small) and that it will stay on. We desperately desire Maggie to hear and talk. It has been like a hard jab in the stomach knowing her hearing aid is not fixable right now. It also made me so much more thankful for her hearing aid and the ability to hear. Never take for granted your children's hearing and talking. It is a precious thing that you don't realize until it is not there.
