The fluid from her spine tells us she has Meningitis. Her brain might swell----
But she's only FOUR!
I can finally hear!
Is this our new house?
This is Cece at the hospital when she was puking and could not sleep. She could barely sing her favorite song, The Yellow Submarine, and she could not hear very well.
Cece, can you hear me?
Cece gets her first hearing aid.
Mrs.Sinkleman is coming!
Cece and her family move to Roanoke.
Could you hear me the whole time?
Cece gets a new hearing aid that she can use for school, called the Phonic Ear. She gives a microphone to the teacher so that she can hear the teacher better than she could with her first hearing aid. She can now understand what Mrs. Sinkleman is saying without having to read her lips.
The students listen to music and dance when Mrs. Sinkleman is out of the room. When Mrs. Sinkleman goes to the bathroom, the kids ask Cece if she can hear Mrs. Sinkleman in there. She can. Instead of always getting in trouble they Cece can help them.
Michael sees Cece sitting alone on the bench. He asks if he could test something with the Phonic Ear. Michael wants to know how long the Phonic Ear could last.
