We got the new compact rechargeable batteries for Lily's CI processors so we thought we'd try having her wear them with wig tape instead of always having her wear the headbands (which we still love). The wig tape worked beautifully and stayed on all day. We ran into a problem when it was time to take them off. The tape stuck to her little baby hairs and pulled them out when I took the processor off of her ear. She screamed and cried and hated it. This makes me not want to utilize this option. For those of you who use the wig tape on your toddlers, how do you keep from ripping their hair out?
Here's Lily wearing the processors with the wig tape...no headband.
We celebrated Lily's first hearing birthday on Tuesday. It's hard to believe that Lily heard our voices for the first time one year ago. Time flies. We are so proud of the progress Lily has made over the last year. Our deaf baby girl can hear and speak...we are so blessed! Enjoy the video.
Lily was born with profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (deaf in both ears) to two hearing parents. She is now learning to listen and hear with the miraculous technology of cochlear implants. This blog was created to update our family and friends on her journey to the hearing world.
