Kell got his hearing aids about a month and a half ago. And yes, I am really slow about getting things updated on our blog. He is hearing better, and we realized this when he exclaimed that he could hear bubbles when went to the bathroom. Those little sounds we take for granted! We can tell an improvement in some of the words and sounds he makes, and he has been very responsible with this amazing technology.
The hearing aids go behind the ear and there is a tube that feeds into an ear mold that is made to fit in his ear. Kell wanted the bright blue ones, like the picture below.
We convinced him that another color might be best, especially since his buddy has the same kind.
Here is a pic of his new 'ears'.
