I’m currently in bed in a rehab hospital after having major orthopedic surgery. For those that don’t know I’m a CI recipient, I take my ears off at night before bed and put them on after showering in the morning.
At 7 am this morning I was still in the land of nod, when my specialist woke me. She started talking away to me while I’m trying to get my brain to quickly start working. Mind you I haven’t understood a word she has said, when I said “oh this is useless”. I suddenly realized what I said, and apologized, explaining I need my ears on before I can hear anything to hold a discussion with anyone.
It sure makes a huge difference even if I, like today just put my processor on.
