The first month

It's been 4 weeks since surgery and 3 weeks since activation. I'm discovering new things all the time. Today I'm not feeling so hot so I decided to head to my family doctor before it turns to's a sinus infection at this point and hopefully my fresh new zpac will shoo it away. The thermometer beeps! Who knew? I sure didn't. I'm finding new things like that that make noise all the time. The photocopier at school tells me if I left something on the glass. Really!?!!
I had my 3rd audi visit on Monday with very little tweaking. She thinks I'm about "there" on volume so my next appointment will be 1/17....hopefully to pick up my Neptune. She does training on 1/13 and hopes mine will be ready by then. She also said that the training was going to include clearvoice. I wonder if that means they think it's going to be approved by then? Hope so.
My sound is moving toward a more Donald Duck type now. Started with bells then robots, then Minnie and Mickey. It just keeps changing. I'm beginning to notice pitch more when I listen to music. I am still rocking things with lots of rhythm sounds best. I also find that I prefer things I have heard fully before....songs I knew before I started losing my hearing.


  1. You're just that much ahead of me that I'm finding your blog really helpful during my recovery. Interesting how the sound keeps changing for you.

  2. Kim,
    Glad it's helpful. I stink at updating though. ;) Just popped over and read yours. I'm not the only one that has resisted for ages. ;)
