December 19th, 2008 CI Activation Day

It was a success!  Carver was activated today and we got a consistent response.  He cried whenever they turned the volume up.  He would stop crying when they turned it back down or off.  So, we are definitely stimulating the auditory nerve.  Now his brain just has to figure out what to do with sound and how to process the sound.

Awesome! Congratulations!

Don't hesitate to email if you have any questions this weekend. If you have trouble keeping the coil on his head, you can try the pilot caps from Hanna Andersson. They are wonderful, especially for babies that are rolling around all of the time! :)

WOW! What a big step! I was very excited today to check your blog and see how things went with Carver. It sounds like things are going great. Congrats!
