From Oslo, Norway, born in 1972. Profound hearing loss at the age of 1, probably due to ototoxic medicine or scarlac fever.
Now waits for CI-operation running on the third year. Write about the Norwegian health-system, myself and my mental and physical status during the long wait.
Expected to be operated in 2009.
I am the father of Drew, a boy who was born profoundly deaf in both ears. He received simultaneous, bilateral cochlear implants at 8 months of age in September 2007.
Our blog is our record of our family's immersion and interaction within the world of deafness. We hope that it helps others find the information and guidance that they might be looking for.
