I just came home from my first evening meeting with my new aids.
Unbelievably fantastic !!
I sat there in the meeting and understood every conversation from every direction even across the room…this situation was totally impossible for me.
I would be lucky to catch 50% of what was going on and certainly would understand zero from across the room.
I have had them in for two days in the office with reasonable results but nothing special to write home about. Tonight was a very different story.
The real test comes tomorrow morning when I make my monthly report to the legislative committee I report to. Large room with tables in a big square with about 20 people sitting around the out side of the square…questions and comments can come from any direction at any time. If tomorrow goes anywhere close to how well it went tonight the whole experience has paid for itself. I’ll never doubt or turn back. Sure I’ve been keeping a journal of performance so when my audiologist returns from NC conference there will be a list of things that can be changed or improved but that is all small stuff.
The big stuff is working well.
I’ll keep you all posted…what an adventure to hear something again.
