Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Elijah's N6's Have Been Ordered

I got the email today that Elijah's N6's have been approved at the in-network rate! He and I sat and looked at the order form and he decided he wanted the color Maize(beige). He also picked out two different processor covers(one for each ear). We are both very excited that he will be upgrading to the N6 from his Freedoms. I was told it will take 5-7 days for them to ship to us, and hopefully someone will be home to sign for them. If not, I will make the 20 minute drive to the FedEx office the next day and pick them up! I can also send his Freedoms back to be cleaned once his N6's are programmed. I made an appointment for him on June 25th to get them programmed. Even with insurance coverage these processors are still expensive, but I am happy that Elijah will get this upgrade!
Here you can see the size difference between the Freedom, which Elijah is wearing now, and the N6 he will be wearing soon!
