    C T lex got a reaction from Jewel in Rondo2: securing replacement leash to clip   
    My audiologist tells me the store is temporarily out Rondo 2 leashes and clips together and have back ordered them.  Also, she had a tool which greatly simplified threading a leash and clip the way Mary suggested.  If anyone is interested I'll find out exactly what the tool is.  I intend to use fishing line as described by Thomas.

    @thomseabrook  Thanks for the last email Thom.  That is very clever.  By looping at the hinge of rubber port there's little tension on the port cover.  Thanks a whole bunch.

    So you just create a loop inside the processor and the lid holds it.  Great, thanks for the input.

    @Mary Beth after putting it under brighter light and magnifying glass, diameter of an eyelet is 1/8" and the opening is about 1/16".  Regardless it is quite small. 
    After playing around with a broken leash,  an eyelet  stretches to a diameter similar to its width.  Just need the right tool.

    Thanks @Mary Beth You may be on to something. The eyelets are 1/16" in diameter, the opening within no more than 1/32".  So maybe a needle threader could spread the opening sufficiently to create the loop?  I had no idea what a threader was until your post.  Thank you, again.
    It's an ugly solution but one can always tie the clip.  I will certainly do that before going untethered

    Thank you for your response, Mary.  I  purchased four leashes as back ups, with no clips.
    The eyelets at each end of the leash are identical in size, so forcing one eyelet through another is  daunting.  These eyelets are very tiny, and I have no forceps this small.  I suspect I'd break the leash if I did.  
    Thanks, but spare leashes w/o clips is not a solution for me.

    Hi everyone,
    I am happy to say I was activated yesterday as I sit here streaming The Flamingos and actually hear the lyrics and melody well.  Admittedly I have trouble making out the lyrics, but I'm good with the melody.  Yesterday,  Mariah Carey's beautiful rendition of Oh Holy Night was rather poor but today it was much better.  The rate of change  over just hours is amazing.
    After activation my audi and the Med-El rep introduced me to what came with the Rondo 2 processor while I"m listening only with the implant.  I was just happy to hear sounds and these guys are talking to me already! 
    It has been a tough waiting period.  I Had trouble with spitting up blood (for three weeks) and tinnitus of my heart beat (which was maddening).  But now that's all done and I'm good.  I am old guy so needed a little good news and yesterday I got. it. 
    I did lose most of my residual hearing so I chose Rondo 2.  Many on this forum have mentioned how loud the volume is on the Rondo2 and it is true.  I am hearing the TV at much lower volume than with my hearing aids.  These first four mappings are testing different volume levels (all seem loud to me).  On TV the quality of the dialogue is such I'm not understanding much of it.  But, hey, it's a little better than it was yesterday.   For some reason music comes through more accurately than TV audio?

    Thank you, Mary.  I will discuss when to test with residual hearing with my Audi, also I did not know a processor is not needed for the test.

    Hi everyone,
    I was implanted about 12 hours ago  in my right ear. This afternoon I  begin hearing my own voice in the implanted ear.  This went on for several hours and suddenly stopped.  But then I started  hearing my heart  beat in the  implanted ear.  This is worse than hearing than my  voice as it is continuous (hopefully).   Does anyone have any idea what's  causing this?   Thanks

    Yes, I've studied it thoroughly (best of my ability).  Med-El website and docs are very good for the  uninformed.  This forum has helped too. That said, I"m sure to have many questions after surgery and look forward to "talking" to you and others.
