Technology is amazing!

We received Oliver's new FM system yesterday from the hospital.
I thought the hearing aides made a difference, but this, this is a
stunner! I don't have to raise my voice at all. I can even whisper
Of course I have been playing with it;)
Last night I was upstairs and Oliver was downstairs. I spoke into
the microphone and said "Oliver if you can hear me say 'ding dong'".
He said "Ding Dong!" with gusto.
This morning when I dropped him off I left it on and got outside the school...
then said "Bye Oliver I love you!"
I am not sure if he heard me or not because his teacher's system may have intercepted mine-or mine may have gone through the gym like his teacher's has before. LOL. I don't know. I am sure the novelty will wear off, but for now I am excited because it is another step up for my boy...and a connection that we have:)
He can't turn me off, only I can. Poor little guy.
