Ellie's Appointment

We had Ellie's appointment today. Darcy was very happy with how great Ellie has been accepting new sounds! She reprogrammed Ellie's processor so that we can continue to increase the volume. I asked her when the volume will be a "normal" hearing volume, and she said it should only take another 3-4 weeks. At that point, we will stop increasing the volume and give Ellie a chance to listen and learn. She is hearing all these words and sounds for the first time, so she needs some time to process everything.

  1. My mom finally got her Baha activated today. While not the same device as Ellie, my mom said it is REALLY weird to hear. Really hard to get used to, and kind of echo-y:-)

    Isn't it amazing that Ellie is picking up sounds so quickly? I love it!
