    I'm no superstar. I just like paying it forward. We are all in this together. 
    Your journey has just started and look at how exciting it has been already! Enjoy it to the max. The best is yet to come ūüėä.¬†

    First day "WOW" moments.
    -The wine pouring in my glass
    - My daughter said, "I love you Daddy" and I understood it!
    -The rustling of a plastic bag
    -Steak sizzling on the grill.
    -Throwing a handful of stones and hearing them hit the ground 20 feet away
    -The sound of water from the tap running into the sink
    -I could rub my fingers together and hear it in my right ear
    OMG this is great!
    Thank you to the mentors on this site. Especially the three super stars; @Jewel, and @Mary Beth, and @Mary Featherston! You are all so wonderful for us newbies getting ready to embark on this incredible journey. Thanks! You are the BEST!

    Yes I'm sure many pictures will follow @Jewel when I have all the hardware to put them on. It's nice to have some things to be excited about already.

    Me either! In fact, my activation was supposed to be Thursday February 21st. But I called my audiologist and told them that I could stand by in case they get a cancellation. And sure enough they had one for tomorrow! Yay! I get to hear some sound in my right ear for the first time in over 18 years!

    My implant date was Jan25th..my activation date was Feb6th!! I was hearing immediately on activation! I was SO thrilled! At first voices sounded a little like Donald duck,but during the visit voices became more normal.Im only 2 days out,and there are things to smooth out and to learn about my Sonnet.But I have to say,I'm on cloud 9 !!

    I see that you are in Australia since you are not on Facebook book as I am not I would call MEDEL or if you know your local MED EL customer engagement Rep and know their email they will send a  notice when one is being held in you area.The MEDEL customer service person at the 800 number may be a starting point.
    If you received a red binder there may be an customer service person at MED EL to email directly .Happy hunting if I can be of any help just let me know.We all are in this together.
    Please let me know your outcome
