We went to our appointment for the hearing aid and got fitted for the mold. Rebecca woke up so excited, I felt bad that she had to wait until the afternoon for her appointment. She chose a purple see-through hearing aid with a pink/purple mold. It will be a Phonak Junior Naida UltraPower. Compared to her CI, her hearing aid is really small. Some positives about this peticular aid and why we chose it:
1) It is water resistant. It can be worn while playing sports or even when caught in the rain.
2) It takes the same kind of batteries as her CI, so we don't have to order different batteries.
3) It is a strong hearing aid, which is exactly what she needs.
We did the hearing test on the right ear and she heard nothing. She never heard the sound not matter how loud it got. We are getting the aid just to keep the nerve stimulated and it will also hopefully help with balance as well. We will see how it goes. We go back in a few weeks for our fitting.
Here's a picture of what it will look like:
