The hero of the piece



Despite the dummy withdrawal, the boy remains remarkably cheery and finds coping strategies.

What an adorable little man! I found your blog on a friend of a friend of a friend's blog, or something like that. I am collecting CI blogs to read, since I'm hoping to have CI surgery myself this fall...I have linked to you...I hope you don't mind?

Hi Jason. Would you believe that this is my first experience of a blog!! And I've read Tom's story with a great deal of interest.

I'm pleased that you've been here to The Ear Foundation, and we hope that Tom and his family will be frequent visitors over the years ahead.

Would you like to set up a link to our website under the Links CI Stuff section?

If we can help in any way, just let us know!

With every good wish to you all.

Brian

Thanks Brian - I'm yet to visit myself although Nik and her brother had an incredibly informative time there during one of your pre-implant days.

The link has been duly inserted and preempts a rash of additions.

As for blogs, are you now hooked?

Thank you for putting your story on the web. my daughter will get her implant on monday and reading stories such as Toms makes its easier to deal with the uncertainty and anxiety we are experiencing. She has been hard of hearing since birth and has progressively lost her hearing. She is four. Today we vaccinated her against menigitis and iwll do the same wiht her siblings. thanks again for the wonderful page.
