Activation Video

Just like Google, I can find everything I want to watch on YouTube! I found this very moving video of a cochlear implant being activated. This was the first time she heard her mom and dad. I'm getting misty eyed just watching her.

Hello! I found you from Jennifer's site. I know you are excited and anxious about your CI surgery. You will be in for a nice surprise!

May I add your blog to my site? I'd love to share your journey with others!

wow that was awesome Abbie, to see her hear like that for the first time. I can't wait till your surgery is done and you are at that point : ).
Love ya

That is really cool. At least you'll get a sense of what its like when you're activated. For me, it was the most awesome feeling and experience. BETTER BRING SOME KLEENEX too!

Hello! That is me in the video :) It wasn't happy crying, the sound was TERRIBLE! But 2 weeks later and I was understanding stuff without lipreading.

I hope you are prepared for awful-sounding noise at first but it does get better!!!
