Monday is the Big Day

The big day is just around the corner. Kate's implant will be activated Monday morning. This is one of those thing that it feels like you wait forever for, and yet I can't believe that it is already hear. I am very excited, the nervous stomach started earlier today.
I am trying to keep my expectations in check. Every kid is different, and every kid responds differently. If the implant is successful I think that Kate will respond very positively. She does have some sound awareness, and gets quite excited when she hears something. She loves to babble away at us, so I think that she is going to love hearing us talk. Of course, this is just what I think...she may react completely differently.
One thing that I know for sure, the implant activation is no the end of the process... it is really the beginning. There is a lot of hard work ahead, for both myself and Kate. Kate is not only very bright, but very strong-willed. That strong-will has left me exhausted and exasperated at times, but in this case I think that strong-will is going to serve her well.
Please keep her in your prayers... and check back Monday evening or Tuesday morning.

I am so excited to see this amazing world open up for Kate and you too! I will pray for peace for Mommy and a sense of excitement for Kate as she experiences hearing for the first time... What a joy to know that God is working in her little life so much already!

Oh, and I LOVE the new blog look!

I am so excited for your family! This will change so much for Kate, you and Meigan. (even though Meigan would rather things stay the same ;o) A whole new world is just around the corner for Kate! Just think, even just a year ago this was out of her reach. What a blessing! She is a blessing to see blossom!
