Emily's Moment.....

Out of the two girls, Emily has always been the one who is totally accepting of her implant, her deafness, etc. Delaney has probably questioned more because she had more hearing, for a longer period, than Emily. Emily has never once tried to hide an implant, and has always been happy to explain "what that 'thing'" on her head is. Today, for the first time Emily broke down, and told me she wished she was normal. Now, let's be honest. Emily will never be 'normal', but this has nothing to do with her hearing ;). She is spunky and feisty and FULL of fight/exuberance (depending on the situation), which sets her apart from the norm, but I really think she was born that way- it has nothing to do with what she can or cannot hear.

She was at soccer practice, and it was pouring down rain. I came to pick her up and her team manager handed my her cochlear implant (she explained that the battery had died). Emily was fine until the manager left, and she told me how much she HATES that she can't hear like everyone else on the team....she was sobbing. By the time we got home, she was fine, and we sat down to watch "So you think you can dance". Yes...I make *someone* watch with me, and Em was the lucky winner tonight. As fate would have it, there was a Deaf dancer on the show, who was so amazing, and such a fantastic example of letting nothing stand in your way (and this is without the benefit of aids/implants, etc.). It really resonated with Emily. She is now back to being at peace with herself (until next time her implant dies ;) Funny sidenote= the battery didn't actually die. For the first time ever, the CI got so wet it would not function.

You'd think we would have encountered that before living where we live! It's now dry (ish) and working.

I think everyone is allowed to have a "moment!" How awesome that the deaf dancer was on TV the same night as her rough day. I hope her processor stays dry from here on out (and I am surprised it hasn't happened before in your rainy area, lol)!
