BAHA ( Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) Update

In April Maggie had her last surgery for her BAHA ( Bone Anchored Hearing Aid). It went great and I thought I would do an update on how Maggie is doing
You can see the small black box hearing aid in this picture, It is small, blends in with her hair and has a tiny red light so we can tell that it is on. The BAHA is attached to an abutment on her skull. The abutment is attached to a small titanium implant post that was placed by drilling a tiny hole in her skull.
The BAHA is barely visible to most people and allows Maggie better hearing and more freedom.
 We love it !
Maggie did AMAZING during and after her surgeries. 
She's such a trooper !
We have seen a big jump in her speech and vocabulary too.

The Cochlear BAHA was Maggie's only chance at hearing normally. So far, it's working great ! We have had some minor problems with it though and I will post on that later.
