Left Cochlear Implant Hook Up Date 8-31-10

It's a Success!!! Nathaniel went to his Audiologist today and got his Left Cochlear Hooked Up... Sure the surgery is the hard part but today makes all the heartache worth while. He heard sound out of his Left ear for the first time today. We go back every week for the next 2 weeks to "tune" his device to the correct settings and he will be "Set"!!!! Praise God Thank you for all your prayers and God Bless!!

Turn on Date for Nathaniel's Left Cochlear

So it has almost been a month and it's time for Nathaniel to finally start hearing out of his Left ear. We go up to Lexington on August 31st to see what will happen. They will put his new Cochlear on and test it and by the end of the day, my lil man will be hearing out of both ears after being born deaf. God is Great, God is Wonderful..... I'll keep ya posted

Left Cochlear Implant Surgery 08-03-2010

We're home, Thank God! We left out on Monday night to go and stay at The Ronald McDonald House (which is awesome by the way). While registering and coming back out to unpack the overnight bags, a man backed up into my parked car and dented my bumper pretty bad, it will be getting fixed though. The irony is on September 26th, I got ran off the road about a 1/2 mile away from my house - 2 days before his Right Cochlear Implant Surgery on September 29th in the same car.

Okay, so about his surgery. It was a SUCCESS!!! Praise God!!! At 7:30 a.m. he went back to Pre-op, by 7:54 his surgery had started. This is a procedure that can take up to 2 hours. Last time, his surgery only lasted 5o minutes, this time the surgery lasted 1 hour 50 minutes. He looked so much better this time around too. No paralysis of the facial nerves and not as much swelling as last time either. He is such a trooper :)

I will post new pictures as soon as I can for you to see the progress. Thank you for all of you prayers, we appreciate every one of them.

Getting things ready!!

Needless to say, I am very busy... I'm getting all the overnight bags packed up, a dog sitter for the dog, the house cleaned and a whole lot of praying!
This procedure can take up to 2 hours but if there are no complications, mommy will be holding her boy in less than an hour after surgery.
He has been spunky as ever, I guess he knows he can get away with anything right now since I feel sorry for him :(
Please keep him in your prayers as we go through this surgery again. Every prayer is greatly appreciated.

God Bless!!!
