The traditional five senses are: sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. A classification attributed to dear old Aristotle.
As some of you know, my family has been on a journey to diagnose, understand and treat my daughter’s hearing loss.
We recently came to understand that my daughter has a progressive hearing condition that will likely leave her deaf at an undeterminable point in the future. Trauma as simple as a soccer ball to the head could take her hearing down a step – or cause it to drop out completely. Here’s "an ongoing conversation ":http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/LVAS/ about her condition.
Thank goodness there are Cochlear Implants as a treatment for complete deafness, but we’re hoping to never reach that point. For now, my five year-old is sporting bright red hearing aids underneath her tangerine locks.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone for their support via Bubblemail, email and Twitter. Sometimes this art community is simply a community; and sometimes it takes a village to keep you going.
Here are few ear t-shirts on RedBubble that inspired both thought and a chuckle or two.
