Hearing Aids for me!!!!

So today was the big day!  I had my hearing aid appointment!!!!!  These tiny little things are amazing!  They are from a company called Phonak and they aren't really hearing aids, but more of a hearing system for single sided deafness.  Here is what they do:   The one on my left ear (my deaf ear) has a reciever on it, so it picks up the sounds on my left side that I would normally not hear.  It takes the sounds into its reciever and  instantly sends them to the piece in my right ear.  That one then takes the recording and plays it into my right ear (my hearing ear)!   So now it feels like I hear in both ears!  And it adjusts itself to different background noises and such, so that I get the best quality hearing.  I just think its amazing!  I'm still not able to locate a sound, but this will help me so much when I am in stores or restarants or anywhere where there are lots of people or noises.  I'm really excited about this.  Here are a couple of pictures from today.
This is what they look like.  The red one is for my right ear and the blue one is for the left.  You cant even see them when I have them on.  Technology just blows me away!
I'm a happy girl!

  9. A happy girl is a beautiful thing, Kelly! Good for you for taking care of yourself and sharing such a personal part of your life.

    I sadly won't be meeting you in person this weekend to give you a hug and get messy with paints. I won't be making the Flora Bowley class after all :( Will look forward to hearing all about it!
