This picture was taken at his initial stimulation. It was snapped as the processor was turned on with the volume and sensitivity all the way down. Seconds after this was taken he knocked the headpiece of and started crying. He was scared half to death and looked so pitiful that I started crying.

Doesn't he look shocked here? I wonder what he was thinking at that moment. Probably, get me outta here!

Even though they tell you that it isn't going to be a miraculous, "Hey, I can hear now", you always secretly wish it was that easy. Cochlear implant surgery is generally the easy part. The aural rehabilitation afterwards is the work.
His ear is back to normal too!
