A hearing pocket!?
Landri's right ear will be "activated" one week from today! This is where the audiologists program and hook up the external pieces that Landri will wear on her right ear.....same set up as on the left. I am so excited to see if Landri has a reaction. She didn't do much when she heard sound in her left ear for the first time, but now that sound has meaning to her I am anxious to see how she receives her new surround sound. I am for sure that Landri is wondering what her right ear is for. She has decided to use it as a pocket. :-) Ya know how most kids Landri's age put everything in their mouths......Landri tries to put everything in her right ear.....never her left. When she walks around outside she is always trying to put rocks in her right ear....she sat on the deck for about 20 minutes today trying out different rocks that Halle had found in her ear. We have had to pull the car over because she got a cheerio wedged in there and thankfully we were able to get it out. She tries to put straws in her ears, wood chips, food.......all her most favorite treasures. I think she wonders what that thing is for. I can't wait for her to realize that we will now use that ear to hear! A hearing pocket......what a good use!
