I'm still discovering new sounds that I've never picked up before with my HA. I still wear my HA in my other ear, I don't ever want to go back to just hearing out of one ear. My HA is really complimenting my implant, sounds blend in together well and really helps with just listening to convos. I'll test myself by taking my implant off and just listen with my HA, I can barely hear anything and I cannot understand a single word of a convo., how the hell did I manage like that?, I really had no clue that I was that deaf. Just yesterday, I was speaking with my hun's granny, she told me that my speech is so different, that every word I've spoken to her was perfect! This is the woman who always corrected me with my speech, lol, to get such a compliment like that from her was awesome.
I missed being able to use the telephone, so hopefully my next mapping will help with that. I'll update again after my new mapping in Oct., my hun will still be off from work, so he gets to go with me and see how it's done!
Well, gonna stop yakking and play some games!
