HearPeers Heroes Adam Posted August 14, 2013 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted August 14, 2013 I had to make a few hospital visits today so while I was there, I stopped by to see a nurse friend of mine who works in Post-Op. One of the patients she was taking care of, had just had CI surgery a few hours before. She went over to check on him and told he and his wife that I had 2 CI’s. They asked for me to come over and after chatting for a few minutes found out he got a MED-EL CI. I showed them both of mine and they both had A lOT of questions. I was so glad to have had the chance to meet them as the look of relief on both of their faces after talking to me meant so much to me. I was the first person they ever met that had a CI and apparently our talk really put them at ease as far as what to expect in the upcoming months. I told Lori (my friend) to give them my email address if they wanted it as I would be more than happy to help them in any way that I can. I also told them about hearpeers. Actually did not catch thier names but hopefully they will look us up. the wife was very interested and had no idea. He will be going bilateral. My hospital will only do bilateral sequential surgeries now. Totally made my day. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
