    Tracey_66 got a reaction from Mary Beth in Wishing Matt the best this Friday   
    @Mary Beth Interesting. I had an initial test for speech end of June after 1 month activation, not in the booth but with the specialist in her office. 
    Have been told that sometime next month I have another test in booth at the hospital before another mapping and another speech test with specialist.. So wondering if the next one will be mostly speech as by then it will be 4 months activated.
    @phobos512 Mobile phones not for me easy either, but then I tell myself ,it takes time , so even if two words that's great.
    Although it would be lovely if my lovely Mum, stops jumping out in front of me whenever she has a video call on her phone to get me to have a chat to whoever it is!!!😱 .It is a little off putting.

    @Mary Beth forgot to add that I had a booth test at the hospital in June just before I think first mapping.That was like an normal hearing test. The next one involves open field test . Whatever that is!!!

    @Jdashiell fantastic interview!
    I know of two string players one a bass player the other his partner who plays the violin!! Both have said that in really noisy events it is the vibrations that they get and what helps them through the noise!!. Otherwise like you they get the vibrations and sounds.
    Interestingly, my specialist here had said that: after activation, it is the bass or percussion which is heard first. However, not everyone gets this. As everyone is different.
    What I can say after being activated 2/months , first it was the drums etc now the bass. Now got to the point that I can now distinguish bass from drums in a song. ( admittedly depending on the type of  music I'm listening to and quality of soundtrack, i.e YouTube, not always that good).
    Other instruments no, I'm aware of sounds but not what they are at the moment, often it seems as if they are competing with the bass or drums, muffled or garbled. Vocals a bit hit and miss.

    It was great to see everyone. Apologies if I didn't participate much, as I was reading the captions and the txt messages!!!
    I realised after we finished that I had a question for Valentin about rehab in spanish. Duh. But then thought  it maybe a bit rude as it may not resonate with everyone .
    Stay safe and hear from you all next month!!

    Tracey_66 got a reaction from Mary Featherston in Question for CI users around the world   
    @Mary Featherston One day. The Prado is one of many on my list to get round to seeing.
    The audiologist normally comes down to the coast here from Madrid once a month apparently. 
    ( To do everyone in one go I think).
    Due to the pandemic, might at a push, see him October/November time for my next mapping. Otherwise if not then maybe next year.

    My Audiologist lives in Madrid. I've not met him yet due to the pandemic. However the speech therapist down on the coast has had to learn what to do remotely from the audiologist in Madrid!  When the Audiologist does come it will be interesting for me to see how much difference in opinion regarding Mappings.
    The appointments themselves have now become more regular. We wait then go in once she is ready. We wear the masks not the specialist. Although she does have a variety of masks in her office as she does rehab work elsewhere in the day hospital.

    Might add that I am happy with the Rondo 2. Maybe 5 years down the line if I have the chance to upgrade then I will.

    @Mary Beth I know!
    Looks interesting. I see that they have the audio link set up for it. I hope the problems that some have had with it has been resolved.
    Wireless streaming?
     
    On a different note,
    they have bought out the Samba 2 recently as well, although that has a different setup in the form of an mobile app and it seems to be offering a different Bluetooth device. 
    Med- el has been busy!!!

    @Mary Featherston. Wow a lot of places. Sounds like you had a great time.
    I have promised myself one day to go to Cordoba when I can hear better ! Maybe next year. Fortunately it's reasonably easy to get to. I can get the train from Malaga to Cordoba.😁

    @Mary Featherston I live up in the mountains North of Malaga in Andalusia. Where have you been in Spain. 
     
    @Mary Beth will ask when the audiologist is available from Madrid. At the moment the speech therapist having to do it herself, and if she has problems she gets in touch via video link means or on her mobile.
