It's time. The day is here. Laurel goes in to have get a Cochlear Implant in her left ear Thursday at 7am. I would not be being honest if I said I wasn't nervous, not so much for her safety but WILL IT WORK? No one knows for sure. She has Auditory Neuropathy which is complicated (light switch on/off) but the consensus is that all things being equal it should help her.
A while back, I asked God to make the decision for me. I didn't want to have to make the decision of taking her residual hearing away to try the implant. He answered. Shortly there after her testing came back that her hearing in her "good" ear was failing. She was having trouble hearing those tricky high frequency "f" and "s" sounds. It was time.
It was no mistake that 2 weeks before she was referred for an implant that she was accepted into a grant that will pay for most if not all of her $40,000 per ear implant!! That is "exceedingly abundantly" ABOVE all we asked of our Lord.
"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us." Ephesians 3:20
So, we are excited for what this could mean for Laurel. We are a bit nervous but come boldly before the throne of God asking for healing for her. We know she is His child and has His hand on her. What more could we ask for.
Thank you for your prayers.
