Lotte is doing GREAT..!!

... she's growing and growing.. both physically and mentally. It's a joy to observe this little girl taking more and more control over her life.
Doing sports (handball), playing with friends in the street and at school. She's claiming her own life more and more.

Same with CI.. It's no longer something for her that's just there without hardly noticing it, it's becoming more and more a tool that she is getting to know..
Not just thinking about where to put it, but also controlling the software is becoming part of her. (Changing to another program when sounds are loud..)

The BTE's are now on the ear almost all the time. She even played handball with the BTE's on the ear last Monday, showing that she is confident that they do not fall off AND more importantly that she knows she has someone to put it back.
She still can't do it herself. With her hair in the way, she hasn't figured out how to do it.. (Even though I think the main reason is... She doesn't have the patience to try & learn.... There's someone else around that can do it for her..)

Some days ago she came in and announced that her friend helped her to put the CI on the ear... the plug in the ear... meaning that Lotte is secure with the knowledge that someone at school can help her..
(We still have to show the teachers how it's done... )

Will she get the N5 upgrades in the future? It's very small and sleek. Far better that the freedom.

Very likely, but it's up to the Norwegian state to provide one. It will come.
Fornow the Freedom work fine,
Whats so extra good about the N5?
