Jan. 13th!!!!

Forgot to post when I scheduled it, but my other ear is scheduled to be done on January 13th!!!!! I'm counting down the days. Ready to get the 8 week waiting period before activation over with. Good thing this time is that I have one good ear to work with instead of one bad ear for 8 weeks :) I will be honest and say I'm not looking forward to the after effects of anesthesia though.

I went last week and had my adjustment on my ear, that went well. They changed some settings up and tweaked some volume and stuff. It's really kind of hard to explain because I honestly don't know exactly what they's all technical. Lol. Basically I just tell them what I don't like or wish was 'better' and they do their magic on the computer with the device and 'tweak' it. I did get a 100 on my word comprehension!

On another note, I hope everyone reading this has a very Merry Christmas and enjoys time with family. We ourselves have already had several Christmas parties this month with extended family, but this weekend will be spent with close family.

I really don't have anything else uber exciting to talk about..........sorry folks!


  1. WOW! That's already in 3 weeks!!!
    Wish you all the best for your surgery. And then a happy stereophonic 2012. And merry christmas, for the time being.
    100% — does that mean you are hearing in a completely normal way?
    BTW, there's a blog entry describing the benefits of bilateral hearing. It's about CI's, but many things may also be valid for hearing implants. Just google for "funnyoldlife 1 + 1 = 3".

  2. Activation for me Jan. 23.
    You are a "star"--100, SUPER!

  3. Wish you luck and Merry Christmas to you!!!
