At this very moment...



At this very moment, my 7 year old daughter is suffering from another stomach migraine, or cyclic vomiting syndrome. This causes her to be extremely sick, and she will vomit several times an hourall through the night. She's in my bedroom, the darkest and quietest room in the house, and I'm watching TV in the living room. Every few minutes, it hits her. She doesn't have time to call my name, she quietly gets sick until it passes.

I can hear her. Every single time. Even over the chatter of the TV and the other kids. Because she will get sick as much as 20 times or more through the night, she sleeps in our room. I hear her, every single time, and awaken from my sleep, and I help her get through it.

This, to me, is one of the true miracles of my implant.

Sick child
I'm so sorry your daughter is sick, but it's wonderful that you can hear her and help her with your new implant! It sounds like it's been a great experience for you - I hope the technology continues to improve and that my daughter might benefit from it some day. Thanks for keeping us up to date on the Envoy Esteem.

I am so happy for you...
I just came across this..you wanted to know who was out there? Well, a person who had the esteem implanted 7 months ago and still can not hear. I am so happy you could hear your daughter and was able to help her through the night. I would give anything right now to have that. I am at the end of my rope with excuses and appointments being delayed. I have stories I could tell you about nights my two young children needed me and I could not hear them. It is the biggest reason why I had the Esteem done in the first place. Now I am worse than before. I am still waiting for them to helpme get this thing working but was told today I would have to wait two more days. Last week they cancled and told me they would be here tomorrow. Do they understand that my life is on hold?? I thought this was only going to be 8 weeks of struggle but now it has turned into 7 months and still counting...
