Lots of first timers this month.  That is awesome.  Such a lovely group of Med-El CI users!

Hi Mary Beth. Just a quick heads up that unfortunately won’t be able to attend the HearPeers Virtual Coffee Chat next weekend. I had a hearing test and appointment with my otolaryngologist today and the results were so bad that he ordered me straight into the hospital. It appears that my left-side hearing (the “good side”) suddenly crashed badly over the weekend (after beginning to weaken a couple weeks ago) and my doctor wants me in the hospital straightaway for daily tests, observation, treatment, etc. Maybe surgery, too. He said I should plan on being in the hospital at least a couple weeks. He said he and his team still haven’t been able to figure out what’s wrong (probably several things at once) but he said it’s clear that my hearing is steadily weakening and that we need to do something different. As you may recall, I’ve been taking Prednisone (cortico-steroids, as I’m sure you know) for quite a while and that seems to have helped, but my doctor said today that that approach appears to be at the end of it’s usefulness. Ironically, my cool new Rondo 2 still hasn’t proved effective yet and the COVID-19 crisis has delayed my plans to visit the States to work with experienced, English-speaking audiologists to get that sorted out. So I’m kind of between a rock and hard place. But my doctor and his team are considered the best in Japan and I have full faith in them (especially since the folks at MEEI have endorsed everything they’ve done so far) and they work with Med-El all the time, so I’m sure they’ll sort things out eventually. In the meantime, Japanese hospitals are not bad: well run, well staffed, good food. Can’t complain. I’ll let you know how things work out. In the meantime, please give my best to all at the HPVCC next week! Best, Kirk
