Cochlear Implant Activation Tomorrow!

We are so excited about Gwyneth's activation tomorrow!  We have no idea how she will react...she has enough hearing in her left ear that we don't expect it to be too dramatic.  We know that kids her age often have a difficult time adjusting, and considering she has had almost no hearing in her right ear for at least a few years, we are anticipating she might not be too happy with it at first.

We'll let you know how it goes!

That's so exciting!! I still remember getting my first hearing aide at 9 and Mom turned on her turn signal on the drive home and I asked, "What's that??" Of course Mom was stunned that I had never heard it but I didn't know any different. I've left comments before and mentioned I have a rare genetic lung disease similar to CF called PCD and my health tanked this summer so I started my own blog to share my own journey...yours was the first blog that I started following in 2008 after Gwyneth was first born and you got me hooked! I have been praying for you guys ever since...I was misdiagnosed with CF when I was 12 so it is close to my heart and I have benefited from treatments for CF like the Vest and inhaled antibiotics etc. :) Here's my blog if you ever want to check it out. ;) www.rachelleandjordan.blogspot.com

Hope tomorrow goes well!!
In Him,

Praying the gift of sound will be a blessing for Gwenyth and your family. Enjoyed the photos of her on Instagram and was particulary struck by how her smile is Tricia's. You certainly do have a beautiful couple of girls with whom to share life!
