Jack hears with two ears!

Well today was the day, Jack is officially hearing with two ears.....yeah! Jack did so well today, he was very go with the flow and took it all in stride. I was very nervous that he was not going to tolerate being without his old ear on and having them program the new one. Well he was not only programmed and it went well, but he walked out of his audiologist wearing both. He has not taken it off all day and he even has put it back on when it has fallen off. I know he is not understanding much out of that ear yet when his old ear was off at his appointment I was talking to him about a picture he was coloring and he was not responding to me. Normally he will talk with me about his picture and I was getting nothing back. Then when we put his old ear on he was talking to me again. I was told that this is normal and in a few day I will notice a difference. I think he is really going to catch up quickly his AVT is going to be pretty aggressive with his therapy and she thinks his new ear will catch up fast. I will keep you all informed of his progress as we go.

Today when we were getting ready to leave the audiologist Jack was sitting on my lap and I was talking to him and normally I have to adjust him so I am talking on his "good" side. Anyway, I realized that I didn't have to do this anymore and Jack can now hear on both sides.....it was a great feeling and it gave me a tingling feeling. I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring!!!!
