Activation is in less than 48 hours! Wow - we have been waiting almost 9 months for this day to come. I am both excited and nervous. Honestly, I have been experiencing increasing anxiety over her activation in the last few days and I'm not really sure why. I know what to expect. I'm not counting on an "A-HA!" moment and I know that it could take several weeks or months to notice Sophie reacting to sounds. I guess I am just nervous because everything we have planned so far leads up to this step and now we are facing it. I also recall how overwhelmed I felt when Sophie first got her hearing aids. I just wanted to cry and the thought of dealing with her aids on a daily basis was unfathomable to me. Eventually, however, it became second nature.
I know her CIs will be different. It will be hard work and require much dedication, but I know we are going to eventually see a benefit. I can't wait for the moment when I see a difference in Sophie. This will be my "A-HA!" moment. The moment that I will feel free from the worry that I have been carrying around. We are going to get there!
Anyway, it's finally here! Friday is the big day! I will try to post an update this weekend. :)
