Today is the big day! I could hardly sleep last night I was so excited. Activation was at 8 am so we left the house around 6am to make sure we made it on time....You know how the traffic is on 476 and 76. Horrible all the time. We just picked Morgan out of her bed and put her in the car, so she slept till we got there and woke her up. We got there around 7:30 am. We had just enough time to wake her up and get her dressed before we went in. This was such a special day, with Morgan getting activated and both Ben and I having off at the same time. We were going to treat Morgan to a day at the Please Touch Museum after she was "turned on". Once in the hospital we stopped in the tiny convenient store to grab a little something to eat and drink. Morgan was telling the cashier that she was going to hear for the very first time today out of her New Ear, and that Mommy and Daddy were taking to the Please Touch afterwards. It was so cute listening to her tell the lady all about getting to hear for the first time! The lady asked what our names were and told us to just go to the front desk when we got to the museum and there would be tickets waiting for us. Ben and I looked at each other and were thinking could this be real? Well have to wait and see. Activation went fantastic....Morgan did a great job, but we were a little out of practice at our condition response listening game. We need to work on that. She was acting like this was no big deal and Heather her TOD(teacher of the Deaf) and I were about in tear when she said "I HEAR IT"! Morgan has 4 programs to go through until she goes back on Monday the 17th. These 4 programs are very basic just to get used to everything, so hopefully after next Monday we will be able to really start some intense therapy. I will post videos.
