Update: a new one: “My wife lost her hearing when she was 2.5 years old doctors told her family she would never be able to talk. She was able to hear for a while with hearing aids. When we first met each other she was still able to hear with the aid of hearing aids. We got married and slowly i noticed her hearing getting worse. We tried new hearing aids and nothing seemed to help. The doctors suggested that we think about the cochlear implant. At the time my son just came into the world so we both decided it would be best to wait. Two years later we said now is a good time to do it. Things had been frustrating but we managed to work through it all. The surgery was not that bad. She was afraid of getting her head shaved more than anything. come to find out they didn’t even need to cut any hair. Tell this is the video of the device getting turned on for the first time. The following day she was out side with my son and heard a noise and my son who is 2.5 said birdie tweet tweet. We just want every one to know how well these things work.”
God bless Science.
You will cry.
