Hello to the World of Sound!!!!

Today was the big day....the day Owen' was fitted with his new hearing aids. I don't think I could have been more excited!! We arrived at the Audiologist's office and Owen immediately began pointing to his ears, as if he knew exactly why we were there. I actually think that somehow he really did know why we were there! Once again, he was the perfect little patient. He cooperated well through the entire appointment and basically let us do whatever we needed to do. He sat well through the fitting of his earmolds to his hearing aids, the programming of his hearing aids, and the verification testing that was done to ensure his settings were appropriate. At one point during the appointment Owen was sitting on my lap and I was leaning over his right shoulder talking to the Audiologist. All of a sudden it was like a light bulb went off and he realized that he was hearing me from his right ear. He turned, looked at me with surprise written all over his face, and gave me the biggest smile. Welcome to the world of sound little guy!!!

Sportin' his new HA's
