{ ... Rainy Day in New York ... } New York Otolaryngology Instititue ... Cochlear Implant Center I'm gonna connect up the external transmitter here. Gonna stick right on ... Put this right here ... Hopefully ... There we go! Let me begin by telling you a few things What we're going to do is we're going to start to increase the current a little bit on the most low frequency electrode that we got One of several things may happen, we may not see anything at all, we may see a negative response. We may see some sort of searching or blinking or any of that So we're gonna be paying close attention in terms of watching him, because that's what we really need to see ... OK? Even though you have waited a long time for this, and he's waited a long time, his ears were just born today. I'm gonna go ... One ... Two ... Three ... Go ... { ... Soft Buzzing Sound ... } {Laughing} ... Hi !!! That was so good! You did a great job. Good Boy! This is still relatively low ... One ... Two ... Three ... Go! { ... Louder Buzzing Sound ... } You couldn't ask for anything better guys, I gotta tell you. OK guys ... Right now he's been listening to each of the electrodes, it really is, you know nothing very interesting, although he's been great. We're gonna turn the speech on { ... Dad Says ... "Good Boy" ... } One ... Two ... Three ... OK ... Peter ... Peter ... Peter ... Hi Peter! Hi Baby Boy! How are ya? Hi Buddy! His ears are exactly five minutes old ... OK? So ... That's really the critical thing at this point, to expose him to as much sounds and to make him ... { ... Mom says: ... "Chris this is amazing ... Look at this" ... } ... and to make him very happy about it! Peter! ... Hi! ... Hi! ... Hi Peter! ... Momma, mamama ... It's Mommy { ... Back at Peter's home ... } Peter! How big is Peter? Sooooooooo Big! Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh Good Boy ... Good Boy! You hear Daddy? That's my Boy! ... Are you copying Daddy? It's a miracle ... The cochlear implant is providing my son, with freedom, and opportunity, and a key to the world ... That's the opportunity that I'm providing for my son. That's the criminal that my brother is doing to his ... his family. And, it's abuse, and I'll tell you right now ... I stand behind my decision a thousand ... thousand percent Because my son will never go through, what my brother had to go through ... Deaf culture as they know it ...
