Mollys Activation



Hey Sports Fans...we are back and all is well. Molly's activation was just as we expected...small reactions to the sound. She didnt, as Rob dreamed the other night, immediately start speaking to all of us and with a British accent. My husband is crazy! ( or watching too much Family Guy) I video taped both mappings and just edited out a small segment. Because she had some hearing with her aids, we didnt get this HUGE reaction to sound but she did get a little uneasy which is obvious when she looks down and puts her fingers in her mouth. That is about as uncomfortable as she got. The day after we got the implants she cried for about 15 seconds and the next day about 5 seconds. Today...nothing...she is actually excited about wearing them and is anxious to get them on.

We are slowly bumping up the sensitivity...did so today and she didnt blink. She also will turn her head to her name...so Im a little surprised that we got that so soon. I didnt expect to get that for a few more weeks. Anyway... there is a lot more to tell...but who has the time? The boys were scheduled to stay with a sitter who got the swine flu so they came with us. We turned it into a little family vacation which was nice and the boys were actually fairly well behaved...fairly..not perfect.

We will be heading back to birmingham on Monday morning and then Molly has her shots later that afternoon. Big week next week getting ready for the new school year...more to come.

Debbie,
I am so happy to hear the Molly is doing so well. I have been checking your blog every day to see how Molly has been doing. Molly will be talking before you know it and all of this will be a distant memory! I am so happy for your family!!
