Who says CI kids can't appreciate music!

While Kevin amazes me everyday with things he says, it has been a little while since I have been brought to tears by a 'CI Moment'. Today, it happened again. What a wonderful feeling!

We were driving on the way home from swim practice and there was a lull in our conversation. I had the Vacation Bible School cd on in the car and while it was going in one ear and out the other for me, I guess Kevin was actually listening to it. I remember thinking that I didn't get what the line was in the song and all of a sudden, Kevin sang 'You pray with your heart' in a little melody voice. I stopped and asked what he just said, and he said it again. He said that they learned that at Sunday School and he heard it on the song. Amazing....! Yes, this is truly God at work! Thank you!!! He heard the phrase in the song and actually sang it back. Truly amazing...!

Kevin got mapped a few weeks ago and I forgot to post his fabulous results from that trip. He continues to hear well in both ears, but the exciting news came from the tests that they performed. Last mapping, in March, they did the HINT-c test using voice and he scored in the mid-90s for both ears. They were floored by that. So, this time they decided to do the HINT-c test using a recorded CD and he scored 96% in each ear. Yes, you heard that correctly! He is only 3.5 years old!!! Cochlear Implants and Kevin never cease to amaze me!

I'm a happy Mom!
