Mom Transforms Son’s Hearing Aids into Cartoon Characters So He Would Feel Cool Wearing Them

Who says hearing aids aren’t cool?

A A A

A UK mom with a son diagnosed with profound deafness and hearing loss thought of a way to show kids how cool hearing aids are.

Sarah Ivermee’s four-year-old son Freddie is deaf on one ear and has hearing loss in the other. Last year, he started wearing cochlear implants, which are surgically implanted hearing devices.

Indeed, it “made Freddie’s world a much bigger place”, but reality stuck Sarah when a friend told her that children wearing hearing aids often get teased by their peers.

This is what inspired her to start Lugs, a company that creates custom-made hearing device decorations. Sarah got the brilliant idea from a friend whose daughter experienced difficulties in wearing hearing aids.

“Knowing children are not just happy to wear their hearing aids and cochlears but that they are proud to show them off makes it all worth while,” Sarah told Mighty.

Diagnosed with profound deafness and hearing loss, Freddie started to wear hearing aids in 2014.

Goldfish Stayed Hidden in the Tank for 7 Years to Avoid Being Eaten​​

Its bravery paid off well!

If you’re a regular-sized goldfish and you find yourself in an aquarium with a carnivorous 12-foot monster, you will hide yourself in whatever hole you can find to avoid being eaten, right? It’s perfectly normal to hide from a predator and come out when the coast is clear.

What’s amazing is when you stay hidden for 7 LONG YEARS in the filtration tank. This is what a goldfish in Japan did and was discovered from its hiding place only recently.

Paler than the normal goldfish because of its seven-year hiding.

Woman Wakes Up From Surgery Suddenly Express Hilarious Demands from Her Boyfriend

We wonder how she felt after watching this clip, with all the anesthesia gone?

Surgeries require some kind of anesthetic to numb patients of the pain associated with the procedure. Anesthesia puts individuals to sleep, relax the muscles and calm the mind so that the surgeons may be able to perform the surgery well and induce relaxation for the patient. But when the anesthesia starts to wear off, expect the unexpected as the after effects are usually far from calm and pretty.

Have you ever encountered anyone who had gone under the knife and still has all the after effects of anesthesia? If you haven't, then let us show you just how such a person may speak and act like.

And when we heard about her expected outcome of the surgery and her complaints of frustration, we can't help but laugh so hard!
