So this is my second day since being activated and I got some lovely surprises. I was able to eavesdrop on my mom's conversation with my brother, mind you just making out a few words here and there but it was awesome cos their backs were turned to me. They were surprised I could do that. I was never able to do that with my HA. Also while driving I heard a sound I haven't heard in over 5 years but it was so familiar: the sound that the indicator makes when you're signalling that you gonna turn left or right. I'm appreciating these baby steps.
Today I had a wonderful WOW moment that I wanted to share. I had my single sided CI activated about 4 weeks ago (Flex 24 with a Rondo 2). I have been dedicated to not wearing my hearing aid in my other ear so that I could get my brain used to hearing through my CI. I just started wearing both my hearing aid and using my CI together. Last week I thought I could hear the direction of a bird singing, but wasn't sure if it was a fluke or lucky guess. Today I did an experiment with my daughter. I blind folded myself and she ran around me in circles and stopped and made a little noise. I pointed in the direction that I thought she was, and then removed my blindfold. I got it right EVERY time!!! It was amazing! I haven't been able to tell the direction of sound for almost 19 years. Today, thanks to my CI, I can. Wow, wow, wow!! I would be interested in "hearing" about other peoples' wow moments.
