Yesterday I asked my daughter what she wanted for my birthday. After her tenth attempt to communicate it to me, she gave up and just responded "a toy." I just got an email from a dear friend who has had a cochlear implant for almost a year. She talked about how wonderful it was to hear the birds returning for Spring and the variety of sounds they make. She also talked about her ability to have a conversation with her grandchildren. She's thrilled. I'm envious! So happy for her of course! But definitely envious. We have sent in an appeal to my insurance company and are waiting for their response. We should know by the end of April. Fingers crossed. Prayers sent :)
