Tomorrow is my 2nd mapping and a week that I had my cochlear implant. I cant live without this implant. Its amazing & seriously I wouldn't change it for anything. The results already are incredible. I am very happy! Today I had a CI moment I wanted to share with you. For about 10 min I Heard DING DING DING and it kept going and going and I looked everywhere in my room, I had no clue what it could be then I thought maybe its my sister in the kitchen because she was cleaning. So I went downstairs because im on the 2nd level and nothing no cleaning my sister was sitting down. I said what is that NOISE? She saids its DADDY outside. So I look out the window from the kitchen and I see my father cutting wood. I couldn't believe I Heard this sound all the way in my room with all the windows shut. I was amazed. When I had my hearing aid on I never heard out the window before even when I had my mod-severe loss.
Tomorrow when I see my audiologist I'm going to ask her to turn up the volume a little bit louder Its low. I hear people talking I hear words clearer now but I need it a little bit louder. I cant make out what your saying without reading your lips just yet. I am also going to show her my progress with this program I received with my kit. I am sure shell be happy because my results I cant believe I scored 92% pretty awesome. Been practicing everyday so this helps as well.
My incision looks good nice and pink and now its starting to peel a little. I see my surgeon for the 1st time with my implant next week. Everything is going very well and I'm taken it day by day.
Tomorrow night I have an HLAA meeting I am looking forward to meeting a new friend and showing off my CI this will be my first meeting with my implant. I'll let you know how it goes.
