Survivor Cabin Fever Week 3 Brilliant Books
March 2006, grandson Isaac became ill with menigitis, resulting in profound deafness. Six months later he received simultaneous bilateral cochlear implants- a rare procedure at that time. Three weeks later they were activated. The photos are still captures from a video of the activation. An audiologist manually stimulated the implants but the second photo from the top was Isaac's reaction to "hearing" overhead construction sounds in the building.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 Holy Bible NIV
- - at 7 months of age did you get bacterial meningitis? You had received the vaccination.
- - were you in the precentage of cases that develope seizures?
- - were you in the percentage that would suffer a hearing loss?
- - was the hearing loss profound?
As time passes, we begin to see God’s plan unfold. God put in your life path a
doctor who pushed for simultaneous bilateral cochlear implants. A first in a
five state region with fewer than ten in the nation. Not long after your surgery
we learned of another child scheduled for the same surgery. So you Isaac,
precious gift from God, are leading the way for a better quality of hearing for deaf children. Thank you, Lord.
