Activation Clip

This is a clip of Courtney during her initial activation. It was a long day, but she did great! At this point during the mapping they were adjusting her second ear (left). She was hooked up to a computer so only she could hear the sound. After several times of all of us pointing to the screen when we heard a sound, Courtney did it all on her own. It was amazing! She now points up every morning when we first put on her CIs and throughout the day when she hears specific sounds. She is also beginning to make more baby gurgling noises, and it feels so good to hear them! It truly is an amazing journey!

(Be sure to press stop on the music bar on the right before you play the clip.)

That is so amazing!! It brought tears to my eyes. It brings back so many memories of Allison's activation.
I just love it! It won't be long before she is talking your ear off and you will be loving every minute of it.

We have much the same path! I am Connexin kids and was activated on October 16th-isn't it wonderful?

I can't wait to share this journey with you (aren't blogs wonderful?)!!!


P.S. My Mommy and Daddy are from Dallas, but are hoping to move to Austin in the next chapter of our life!
