It's official.  My baby girl can hear again.

When Dr. White turned them on, the look on her face and in her eyes was priceless.  While I was so happy she could hear again, I felt horrible that somehow I didn't know.

The feel of her hearing aids will take some getting used to.  She is really excited about them and knows they are going to help her hear, but they are uncomfortable right now.  This is to be expected and thankfully she really only needs them during class time for now.  We have no idea what the future will hold for Lucy's hearing, but we are just going to take one day at a time.  

Sometimes technology just blows my mind and this is one example.  These tiny little hearing aids have so much power.  They are capable of so much.  It's really more than I can wrap my little brain around.  I don't have to understand it to appreciate it, that's for sure.  Tonight I am so very grateful to the doctors, nurses, Audiologists and scientists who work so tirelessly to improve our lives.  Especially the lives of the precious girl above.  

What to hear Ella play the piano?  (Its actually a mommy/daughter duet) She's only 2 months into lessons and I'm really impressed!  Go HERE to see it.
