I've just finished packing our bags for the big day. Tomorrow Ethan will have his new cochlear implant activated! We plan to take him to the zoo afterwards since the weather should be gorgeous and the hospital gives out free passes to patients and their families.
This time last year I wrote a post about our trip to the zoo following an audiology appointment for the first implant. That day at the zoo was the first time that Rich and I saw Ethan react to sound, so it was pretty emotional for us. I can't believe that one year later Ethan has the gift of hearing with both ears, it's just amazing. We have so much to be thankful for!
