Another Satisfied Customer

I had the pleasure of witnessing a four year old little boy named Slayton, receive a set of new hearing aids courtesy of the Heart of Texas Sertoma Club, of which I am a member.

Slayton is unable to speak much at all due to the very limited hearing he has endured. His father is in the same boat as many Americans, unemployed. So we had an opportunity to step in and help.

The doctor gave Slayton an I-Pad to keep him occupied while she fitted the aids. She hooked them to her computer to calibrate them to his hearing loss and then turned them on.

The first thing Slayton heard was "Elmo" from Sesame Street singing to him from the I-Pad. Slayton just giggled and giggled! Mom and Dad both had tears of joy in their eyes, knowing that their son was hearing clearly for the first time in his young life.

The doctor showing Mom and Dad how to insert the aids.
I can't imagine a better way to spend an afternoon. Seeing these kiddos receive the gift of hearing never gets old. Very cool stuff.

One happy family!

I noticed the hit counter topped 10,000 hits today. I know it's not much compared to some other blogs, but when I started this one 14 months ago I couldn't imagine this much interest.

All I can say is... thank you.
