Good News!

As you can tell by the title, we received good news yesterday. I talked to our Audiologist and she said that we are going to start the process for bilateral implantation for Ella. We don't have a date yet because the insurance has to approve it before we get that. So now we are getting all the necessary stuff together to submit to the insurance company. I am not worried about them approving her because we have already talked to them and it will be 100% covered. :) I know it seems like it hasn't been that long since we found about about her hearing loss but it feels like this process has taken forever. And it's still not over. There has just been so much time that she has not been able to hear. I know it's not a cure or anything like that but these implants are the best thing for her right now. We are thinking that she will get the surgery done in September or October. We are hoping no later than November. Thank you everyone for praying for Ella and our family.


  1. This is great news! CIs are absolutely amazing and I am grateful for them each and every day. It is a long road, but definitely worth it. Sophie has been activated for about 5 months now and is doing great. I have no regrets and wouls make the same decision in a heartbeat. Thanks for sharing your journey and keep us updated on the surgery timeline!

    ps - Ella is absolutely beautiful! ;)
