Amanda's mapping results have been interesting to say the least!
After her activation-she got twitching.
After her first mapping after activation-she got something she could feel inside her head.
After yesterday's mapping-she got SOUND!
Her audiologist, Fran was trying to figure out some decent maps for Amanda to try this week and was getting some very bizarre and unexpected twitching results.
During the programming, Amanda had been responding with, "Twitching," "Inside," or "Both" to indicate if she was getting twitching, an inside the head feeling, or both. We got quite an pleasant surprise when quite casually and rather nonchalantly, Amanda announced in ASL, "I heard it."
Just to double check, we asked, "You mean this is different from before?" She signed, "Yes, this wasn't inside my head. I heard this."
So we are on our way!!!
When we got home I grabbed the video camera to do a repeat filming of some of the things I taped of her in the last video clip (See Amanda's CI Activation-Part 6 of 6, posted August 19, 2008.)
First thing she tried was.........of course.......Goldy's dog tags! She also tried the TV and flushing the toilet. We added the dryer and ended with the microwave.
Success all around!! Enjoy watching the video clip! I certainly enjoyed filming, editing and captioning it! Woo-hoo!! It didn't even matter that we had a flat tire on the freeway on the way to her mapping appointment and made it just in time because we had allowed enough time for lunch which we didn't get until after the appointment! Don't even know why I brought it up. None of it matters! This was a GOOD DAY! A VERY GOOD DAY!
