Noah's CI battery died today while we were out of the house. Normally we have a back-up with us, but I forgot this time. He's such a different child without his CI - it makes me sad.
He didn't talk.
We tried to interact with him. He knows a lot of signs now if you do them close to his face so he can see.
He just moped.
When we got home we got him a fresh battery and he went back to singing and smiling and non-stop talking/signing. It's days like today that make me realize the CI was the right choice.
