Loving Life in Surround-Sound!

Today we attached the second processor, so Logan is officially hearing bilaterally! I watched him carefully as he walked around the house, playing with his brothers. I was surprised at what a difference we witnessed in just a few hours. Even my older son enjoyed calling Logan's name and watching as he turned his head, knowing exactly where the voice was coming from (opposed to turning his head side to side until he realized the location of the sound).

You should have seen how excited I became when I asked Logan to feed our turtle, while standing a room away, then watched as Logan walked in to the kitchen, opened the fridge and got out a piece of lettuce...all while the TV was on in the room that he was in.

We love being bilateral!

That is so wonderful! I hope Lucas can go bilateral some day. Right now, his surgeon said he won't do it, but I'm still holding out hope. I was perusing the JTC website, and saw your video! I hope we can head out there some summer when Lucas is a little older too!

This is great! And proof that two ears are better than one! I love being bilateral, too, and would never go back to just one. Congratulations on Logan's success! He looks like he has some great "in-house" therapists!

Hi Celeste! This is so exciting. I'm glad things are going well. Ryan misses all of his dental pals. We hope you had a great holiday season.
