Update: Elijah came down with a small ear infection in the beginning of the summer and we discovered that he lost all of his residual hearing. He is now profoundly deaf and is suspected to hear some pitches at 90-100 db. This news hit us pretty hard. Elijah will be having surgery in mid October for bilateral cochlear implant surgery. This will give him a 2nd chance at near normal hearing. His activation will be in the beginning of November. We will be posting his activation video shortly after.

My son got his first hearing aids at 9 weeks of age.
Elijah was born with severe/profound deafness. He can hear at 75 decibels on his right ear and his left ear is profoundly deaf. The blinking was just his initial reaction to the new sounds he heard.
