Implant activation

4/2/10 Ethan's implants were activated.  The audiologist didn't think we would be able to do it because his head was so swollen.  She was shocked and said she had never seen a kid so swollen.  She had to find some pretty heavy duty magnets to get his external stuff to communicate with the internal stuff, but we were mostly successful.

That's so exciting for him to be able to hear! What a long process, though.
