    I had forgotten how “easy” level 1 was. Well, I guess it wasn’t easy when I started!
    i can come a lot closer with identifying the words at that level with my eyes closed.

    sorry for the delay but we just returned from France. Yes, we did Omaha beach and the American cemetery. Breathtaking!
    i couldn’t understand a word the guide was saying but just seeing what our brave troops faced was mind boggling.

    we are sailing on the Seine with Amawaterways. The highlight is a day at Normandy beach. 
    I have been doing aural rehab by reading an audio book and with Clix and Angel sounds every day. And I will continue to do so on our trip.

    glad to hear you’re done and feeling okay. I like the arrow on your neck pointing to the ear. A nice road map for the surgeon.

    Well, surgery complete and Home recovering. So far, so good. Pain is tolerable, no increase in tinnitus (yet), and I can still taste my wife’s delicious food! The only downside is I can’t tell if he was able to retain any residual hearing. The surgeon performed a canal up mastoidectomy and “packed” my ear canal  and I have to wait until I see him in a month for it to be removed to be able to tell if there is any hearing left. That was a surprise  I thought I would wake up and know right away. But I guess I’ll have to wait

    I am a candidate and have an appointment with an audiologist in a couple of weeks to review the options and make a decision on which manufacturer I am going to choose. A daunting decision to say the least because each manufacturer says they are the best.
