David's Story

Michelle - just wanted to thank you for the information you sent us. David has decided not to have the baja implant. He did go to see the doctor in Opelika, AL. He was great and ready to do the surgery but my insurance would not approve the hospital. We had a lot of people praying for David. The same test he had done on Monday that showed he could not hear anything with his right ear, he had done again on Thursday and was able to hear! So, he doesn't need his cross-aid hearing aid anymore. He is getting Miracle Ear in about another week. He was able to hear in the right ear with this and he said he did not hear the roaring when he tried this. 

We say God has done a miracle for what he now has! 

Thanks again!

Linda Pate
