  1. I personally have not had any issues with the Roger pen or Roger 21. I use them often with no issues.
  2. So far everything is going very well. After 19 years, I just made a job change into a field I am very passionate about. I might be the first deaf Security Officer in SC.
  3. Kara im so happy for you!!!! Congratulations!! it has been a crazy year via brain surgeries and a job transition. Can’t wait to hear your progress
  4. Sounds like you are on the right track. I’m sure that is such a relief. Very glad to hear it
  5. Taken longer than I would have expected but I would rather have them take their time to make sure there aren’t any bugs they need to fix later

  8. @Renachelw congratulations on your upcoming surgery. I understand the feeling of being anxious before a surgery. It is important to be well informed and the surgeons do have to advise of any side effects, no matter how little the chance. Each person is a little different. i have had 45 surgeries in my lifetime, 23 of which were brain surgeries. I had 3 just 3 months ago. I have been away for a little while, it is very nice to meet you. Each surgery, they still have to advise you some risks. It sounds like your surgeon is very experienced. I'm sure he will take every precaution to make sure things go as smoothly as possible. Try to focus on this being the start of an amazing journey that you are getting ready to take. Feel free to ask any questions you have about my hearing journey. Keep us updated. your bionic buddy, Adam
  9. Hey everybody i hope all is well. I wanted to quickly update. Some of you know that I haven't been on hearpeers since the 3 brain surgeries in late April early may. It has been a challenge bouncing back due to the trauma to my brain from the surgeries. Here recently, I have been in extreme pain. Had a CT Scan yesterday and found out that one of the ventricles in my brain has collapsed. they have changed the setting of my shunt as high as it can go to try and fill the ventricle as quickly as possible as this is extremely painful. Then once filled, back to original setting I'm just rambling so will end it here. Hopefully in the next few weeks, I will be back. Adam

    Great news

    Cara, I am very much looking forward to it. Fingers crosed for tomorrow. I have a follow up with my surgeon. This is routine usually 10 days or so after surgery to take out staples, make sure Shunt is working... not a fun time as they push around on the site to test the valve, after taking out staples. Usually gets me sick to my stomach

    Great news

    I am very familiar with it already. The trip I took to ASU was to participate in research of the sonnet with both Mics. This was before they were approved in the U.S.

    Great news

    Can't wait. Could use some good news
  13. Just got an email from my Audi. She just got the software from MEDEL and wants me to come in and turn the mic on. Ive worked with both of them before so it will only take 5:00 or so
  14. Cara, i always look for opportunities in situations like this. I alaways try to encourage hospital workers when I can. I won't be down for long
  15. John asked if I would be interested. He didn't mention circumstances so I didn't ask.
  16. Got staples the first time. Tried sutures the second time but knowing how quickly my skin grows back and how I don't tolerate staples well, they tried absorbable sutures. Not gonna lie, this week has been a challenge.
  17. I am ok. Having both brain surgeries within a week of each other has taken it out of me. Not sleeping so I'm sleeping a lot, if that makes any sense. Youd figure I'd have my own system down by now after 41 surgeries
  18. Thank you for the well wishes. I am still in the hospital. I did end up having another brain surgery. Hoping to get out of the hospital in the next day or two
  19. Admitted back in the hospital tonight. Another possible brain surgery. Will know in the next day or so had to explain that I was deaf to the nurse as "but you can hear me fine" came out of his mouth. Not if my processors are off..
  20. Good luck on finding a team close enough to you. Maybe check the find a clinic feature on the Medel website or contact the team that deemed you a viable candidate for some options. Good luck
  21. Sure does Kara, thanks Cara and Marybeth
