A Sign of Progress

As I mentioned in the other post my cochlear implant is set to a very low power during this first week, so I can get used to the feeling of the auditory nerve stimulation. When it was set so that I could hear clicks, I also felt bad. So they set it low for me to get used to it.

I didn´t explain to Nilson, my 4-year-old son, that I am not hearing yet in my left ear. He loves the implant and the magnet on my head. He also loves coming and talking into my implanted ear.

Today, he came and said something to me. I didn´t hear it, but I did hear a quick quiet buzz. That was something... it was progress. Good!
