UCLA- 5 month surgery anniversary!

Kai, Jeff and I took a trip down to UCLA this week to get further testing done. She is doing fantastic. She keeps responding more consistently, and to lower pitches each visit. This is VERY exciting and it just shows how well her progress with the implant is going.

Jeff and I recently felt some sharp bumps behind Kailee's ear where she had the surgery. We will be going to see the surgeon in a few weeks to see if everything is normal. Worst case scenario.. Kai has to go back into surgery to fix the steel plate that holds the implant in. Please pray that everything is secure and stable and that he does not need to cut her open again anytime soon:) I don't know if I could handle it!

We will also be talking with the Dr. about implanting her Right ear. She has a malformation that would make it a little bit more complicated to implant, but Jeff and I are excited to hear Kailee's options. She is doing SO WELL with one implant, that we are not sure about the second. Please pray for wisdom:)

I thank you all again for your prayer and support through this journey. I can't believe it has been 5 months since her surgery!!

I will keep you updated on any news.

  1. I am so excited to hear how well she is doing. God is really showing himself to your family. I didn't even know the other ear was an option! I am missing the mommies and the little ones.
