Ethan visited his audiologist and developmental pediatrician at Children's yesterday and the news couldn't have been brighter. His implant showed all normal impedances, which means it's working the way it's meant to and all systems are go. We're not sure why the implant shorted out recently or if it will happen again, we're just very excited that it's all working normally right now. We are also moving forward with the process of making Ethan a candidate for a bilateral implant, meaning he would be getting his other ear implanted.
And there is more!
Ethan has been experiencing a real surge of development across the board in recent weeks. He is walking now! We never see him crawl anymore! His sign language is in full bloom and he is starting to make progress with speech as well. He is sleeping better and showing more interest in food.
All this and he's not yet even 2 years old!
