a year in a life

I've been blogging my CI journey since well before I knew for sure I'd be able to get them; and today is the anniversary of my first implantation.  I am so grateful for what I've had the opportunity to receive.

Hi @Mary Featherston

I read through some of your blog entries.  Isn’t it so cool to have a record of your CI journey? I have one too but it is just a private journal.  Four years out and I’m still entering WOW moments every month.

 

You made a comment about a change to one side’s MAP and could that impact both sides.  When we change one side’s MAP for me it impacts that side and also my bilateral sound.  There is a summative effect to hearing as well.

Sometimes it feels like a complex network of dominoes.  A slight change to one setting has ripple effects.  Smile.

I hope you are able to get rid of the echo.

By the way, do you hear the echo when using your Artone bilaterally or only when using the processor mics?

Wow, that's a good question, but I haven't been using the Artone that much recently.  I'll have to charge it and see.

It's funny (by the way) I have a journal that I used to keep up pretty regularly but the last few years I've fallen off that particular wagon.  I write travelogues and that's about it.  But when I began my CI journey a number of friends wanted to know what was going on and one suggested this, and it's been kind of fun.  I keep names out of it, but other than that have tried to be fairly open.

Lately I've been wondering if I should just stop with the MAP changes and just work on the one I have for a bit longer.  It feels as though it's weeks before I get back to stability after a change, and then we change it again.  But since I have the chance to meet with the Med-El rep tomorrow, I'm going to do that.  This is my last scheduled visit, after this I'll have to schedule them myself (and I don't know what my insurance will cover after this).

I hope your insurance covers as many MAPping appts as it takes until you reach your favorite MAPs.  Of course, your April appt may solve this for you!
