16 Years!

Earlier this month I wrote a post titled "Secrets to Greatness" and I mentioned that I had my right Cochlear Implant for 16 years. It is kind of hard for me to believe that it has been 16 years already. Sometimes I feel like I was born with Cochlear Implant as it feels so natural to me. I forgot about this tender picture of my mother and I, shortly after my surgery. It is amazing how far I have come since this day. It truly is a miracle.

I remember walking out of the hospital and seeing all my family there. A few weeks later, I went to the hospital and witnessed the miracle of sounds. My first memory of sound was, "Mommy & Daddy, I can hear my footsteps." - David Cluff
