So this is what Jeremy and I woke up to this morning. An excited knock on our bedroom door. I kept saying WHAT, but when no answer came, I realized it must be Kenz since she can't hear anything until I get her equip. on. Anyways, I opened the door and she just starts rambling a mile a minute about how she could hear herself talking. She said, "MOM, MOM, I THINK I AM BECOMING UNDEAF BECAUSE I CAN HEAR MYSELF TALKING!!!!!! TALK TO ME MOM SEE IF I CAN HEAR YOU, SO I COVERED MY MOUTH AND STARTED TALKING,(hoping and praying we were witnessing a miracle). I started yelling things to her, but she just kept saying "alright mom, say something" So I gave her a big hug and put her equip. on and she was a little sad. She again said, "Mom I thought I was becoming undeaf." It broke my heart just a little as I watched her face as I explained that that prob. wouldn't happen, but that her C.I and her H.A are tools that let her hear so it is kind of like she is "undeaf". Then we were watching conference today and one of the speakers was sharing a story about a little girl who was deaf and had a C.I and had learned to talk. Kenzie sat straight up during this talk listening intently and at the end of the talk she had little tears in her eyes and just hugged me. I think the story really made her feel special. We are so blessed to have such a sweet little girl. Yes at times she drives us all a little crazy with her bossiness and her stubbornness, and her not listening (intentionally)but her determination is what has helped her achieve all she has in her young life.
