Yep- She can!
My Daughter got her Soft Band BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) on Friday! I talked about her ear issues here. She has little to no hearing in her left ear because it is closed off AND there is fluid in the inner ear. She also had fluid in her right ear (but now she has a tube), so hearing has been a struggle up to this point. But on Friday, she could hear on both sides of her head for the 1st time in her life!
When the Audiologist put the hearing aid on, her face lit up with delight! I whispered "Say 'Hi Mommy'" very softly on her bad side (she would have never heard it before) and she said "Hi Mommy!" clear as day! I started crying right there in the Doctor's office!
When I took off her BAHA for her nap, here is how the conversation went:
Sweet Girl: On on on!
Me: Do you like it better on?
Sweet Girl: Yes- On please!
Me: After your nap we will put it on!
Sweet Girl: OK
She gets so happy when we put her hearing aid on after naps and in the mornings. And she is always telling us that she is hearing "Noise, noise, noise.... Loud!"
It truly is amazing this miracle that helps our daughter hear! We are very blessed! And we thank God for answering our prayers!
Now I need to work on some cute flowers and bows to add to her new headband! : )
