Here is the activation video of Mr. Parkie.


I wish I could hand out tissues!

(at around 2 min is when he hears sound)

That was amazing! My kids watched it with me and my two year old cheered, though I don't think he knew what exactly he was cheering about (maybe he did) and after telling my 4 year old that now he could hear music and his mommy's voice, I asked, "Isn't that cool?!" and she said, "YESSS!" I'm wiping away my tears now. Thanks for sharing. That was so amazing to witness!

That's awesome Brooke!

I hope Parker slowly gets used to all the noise around him. I definitely think the cochlear implants should stay off for the fireworks tomorrow. ;)

Happy Fourth of July!

So I found your blog from An Experiment in Poverty and love it. Thank you so much for sharing this video. It's incredible. I'm graduating in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology this coming year and this video made my day. Now my degree feels even more personable knowing that cute lil' boys like Parker will be able to hear and talk. Thanks again for sharing!
