No surgery... yet.

Wellll... I'm ready to strangle a couple of doctors! I was led to believe I was already a CI canidate, but after the hearing test with my hearing aids in, I passed the test too well. The one time I wanted to flunk a test I couldn't! I'm scheduled for a repeat of this test on December 7th.

Anyway, my wonderful audiologist has hooked me up with the Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation in hopes of getting me some technology that will help me more on the phone and in meetings. BVR can be a test of patience, so keep checking back here and I'll keep folks posted on what happens whenever it happens.

Wednesday Appointment

The second hearing test, with my hearing aids in, is Wednesday, September 6, 2006 at 11 am. This test will show how much my hearing aids are helping me and whether or not a cochlear implant would help me more than my hearing aids.
