Cochlear Implant Activation
On Tuesday. Sept 23rd. we had an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic to have Noah's cochlear implant activated. It was a much anticipated day. We went into hoping to see an awesome response from Noah, indicating he could hear. They put the processor and coil on and hooked it up to the computer to program it. During this process and beyond I replaced the processor and coil it seemed every 2 seconds. It was very frustrating. I was almost in tears thinking that we put Noah through implant surgery and took what little he could hear away from for nothing. They finally got it programmed and turned him on. We did get a bit of a response but nothing you could catch on video because we were still continuing to replace everything on his head. So there was a lot of in out of hearing for him.Not an ideal situation to get a good response from Noah. It was very disappointing to say the least.
