I should no doubt be doing homework, but instead I'm going to share with you a video that warms my heart. My mom sent me the link to this a year ago, just after this lady received her middle ear implant. I suppose that after putting so much energy into studying solely communication disorders (all things hearing and speaking), a little clip like this would hold unsurprising meaning to me.
She posted on her blog just earlier and announced today as the one year mark since activating the implant. You can read more about it *here*. Technology is such a concrete manifestation of modern day miracles. Who would have thought that this woman would ever defy such odds and hear? I love what I'm studying. I love seeing meaningful successes in other people's lives. I love the fact that this can only get better.

Post script to my CSD peeps:
A video below explaining how it works. (I was wondering, too.) This = the new C.I.
