I am in Texas with my cousins and havin fun. I have been to too many doctors but still have more to go to.
During this visit to Texas I have found out that I will always be deaf in my left ear and that stinks, I do hear pretty good out of my right ear so that is good. At first I was told I would have to wear a hearing aid in my right ear but then it was decided that I wouldn't, it would just increase noise and I don't need that. What I hate is that I stumble around some, the doctor for balance problems said that I would get better with therapy and training. She is a great doctor she ordered daddy to play soccer with me everyday and to get a wii fit YES! I was also told that I need to take Karate or Tae Kwan Do (hmmm not sure if they have that in Malawi or not)
I still get scared sometimes in public places but my parents are letting me get out and deal with it. My cool cousin Redonia is going to take me to a concert. I will take my specially made ear plugs that are made to help me with loud noises and water incase the noise gets too scary. If you talk to me out in public please look right at me so I can read your lips, that helps me a lot.
I have got lots of cards in the mail (and some money yippee). Thanks to everybody that has prayed for me. I still don't really understand how I could be well one day and deaf the next, that still scares me and the thought of going back to Africa really scares me. I know we are going back but I am scared.
Right now I am having fun with my all of my cousins and even went to laser tag with my cousin Gentry.
