A Must See

     I caught this through the magic of Facebook.  You must watch it. You must.  I cried like a baby.  Here is a description of the video.

I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time :) Edit: For those of you who have asked the implant I received was Esteem offered by Envoy Medical.

     Later, the technician asks, "Do you want to hear your husband...?"  At about 1:21, you can hear (I assume), her husband chuckle.  I can't imagine hearing Tim for the first time ever.  My husband has such a great laugh.*

     I hope this brings you hope or comfort or at least a smile.  Yay. It's Friday.


*One time, Tim accidentally dialed me while he was in another conversation.  The voicemail he left was about 10 seconds of him going, "Yep! ........"  And then laughing.  Of course, I saved it.
