I was diagnosed with Pneumococcal Meningitis in mid-April 2006 and was left profoundly deaf as a result. I was 20 months old. I received my first cochlear implant on June 15th 2006 and a second on September 23rd. This is the story of my progress.

The post-surgery garb of choice at Nottingham:
Natty neo- prene head band for wound protection and souvenir of the day
Button-up shirt (easy to forget in these situations)
One sock to prevent determined toddler extracting their own canular.
