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!
