Things are going well @Megan L.  speech is up there now and still working on it. I’m not loving the testing I get since I’m in a study group with my new ear. But that’s ok. Someone has to do it so that Canada will consider two implants for adults. Or at least Ontario. As for wow moments they are there but seem to be subtle these days. I was listening yesterday during training and was able to hear and not continually follow along. So it’s getting there. Also being able to have a conversation in a noisy environment is getting better too. 

@Kara of Canada - I so hope your study encourages Ontario to provide bilateral CIs for others - and that from there other provinces do so as well.  I have a friend in New Brunswick who would LOVE to be bilateral.

I hope I can be a stone in the throw. To the right direction for sure.

I wish the testing that was available better reflected how we hear in our real lives.  Although booth testing comparing a unilateral CI with bilateral CIs can show the improvement of understanding speech in noise and in locating sound sources, it can not show how much easier it is to listen with two CIs than with one CI.  And it can not show the improved sound quality of hearing with two CIs.

I do have improved speech recognition with two. What the Audi was saying was she was looking to see how the brain was doing with one then with two. How things evolve going ahead. So we shall see. I do hear better with two.

Yesterday marked the two years since my activation. Two years since I returned to the world of sounds. It was hard, but it was worth.

Happy 2 Year Hearing Anniversary!!!  Mine is tomorrow ? 

It was hard but definitely worth it. I still continue to hear new sounds as surprising as that is.

Hope all is well with you Valentin!

@Mary Featherston & @Mary Beth

Thank you!!! It’s been quite a journey and it does keep getting better ? I never thought I’d ever hear all these amazing, wild sounds in the world like I do now. And now NYC brings its own variety of sounds to listen to and learn ?

Thanks @Valentin !!

Glad you are doing well! We do have some pretty awesome people on the forum that have made our journeys so much better than if we did it alone (well people who don’t have CIs) ?

Great to hear from you @Valentin 😁 glad to hear you’re still improving and hearing better. Have any WOW moments to share? I turned the heat on tonight and it’s not forced air (it kind of radiates from the baseboards) but I heard a soft “whooosh” and I thought to myself I would never had heard that 3 years ago!
