Successful Surgery!

Keira had her cochlear implant surgery on Thursday! Her surgery went great and they were able to insert the electrode with no problems. So grateful for that! It's always nerve-racking when your baby goes under.... even though we knew she was in great hands with her surgeon you still worry! She was groggy and tired the first day, Friday she started to get her spunk back and by Saturday we were at a ball game! Now we wait for activation day to see how she responds! There will be lots of mapping sessions in the coming months to fine tune the implant. Hopefully she starts responding immediately!

Family baseball fun! Peyton enjoyed the game much more than Keira... Keira wanted to touch everyone in front of us :/

Kindergarten!

Well... we've got ourselves a kindergartener! I can't hardly believe it! Time sure does fly by.
Keira's Cochlear Implant was finally approved and authorized and we now have ourselves an implant date! Tricare ended up denying her twice and her Dr had to schedule a peer to peer with United healthcare/Tricare. Everything seems to be on track now though. I'll try to keep on top of updating the blog after the implant to show her progress :)



K for Kindergarten! :)
