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.
