    What are you doing right now? Part II

    When my oldest daughter turned 3 I decided maybe taking care of a baby in diapers wasn't so bad after all. That physically exhausting period only lasted 3 years, while the mental exhaustion would last 15 years or more. :o :p

    Ader from years ago

    I was recently thinking about you, probably because I'll be passing through your area in a few weeks, with a stop in St Louis. Figured you were busy with your new place. Good to hear from you.

    Check ups

    I believe some HAs do not have volume buttons. Most likely the small ones. Anyway, they do set the HAs max volume at a low volume for new users to get used to the sounds. Though I usually went back 2 weeks later to get them turned up and then would go back whenever I felt I needed the HAs...

    Hearing loss worse

    I'm guessing you're in Canada. I know it can be hard to get them there. (I'm in the USA). But, if you're up to it, keep pushing to at least get tested. It may still take a long time to actually get one, but at least you'll know if you're a candidate or not.

    Hotel friendly?

    The one's I know for sure are Hilton properties, IHG (Holiday Inn, etc), and Marriott. Hilton and IHG let you indicate you want to see accessible rooms up front. The last time I looked at Marriott, you had to chose a room first and then some point in the process you got to tell them you want...

    Hotel friendly?

    I know some of the big name hotels are now offering heading accessible rooms. Look for where they have "accessible rooms" when searching for a room then click on that and they'll show you mobility and hearing accessible rooms. Sometimes they're the same room, sometimes they'll be separate...

    Hearing loss worse

    Where are you located? When my hearing got to the point that I felt I was a candidate my audiologist referred me to a clinic. I never went to my ENT. When you go to a clinic, they will test your hearing with and without your HAs and they test with sentences in noise. If you "fail" the...

    Hearing loss worse

    Ask your audiologist to refer you to a cochlear implant clinic for evaluation. The clinic would be better able to determine if you're a candidate now for the CI. Don't wait till you're totally deaf.

    I Need Adjustments to My CI & Sound Processor

    Have you been going for regular mappings/adjustments? The first 2 years you should have started with many mappings the first 3 months and then have gone every 3 months. More often if you felt the need for adjustments. Also, did your audiologist suggest aural rehab when you got your CI...

    New Med-El CI

    Hmm, no. More & more insurance companies are approving bilateral CIs because it has been proved to be beneficial to one’s hearing health. FDA approval does mean that insurance companies are likely to start covering SSD CIs.

    New to the group

    Have you been evaluated yet for a cochlear implant? If you have, you need to talk to your surgeon about the MRI compatibility of the 3 brands. Also, I suggest you reach out to others with CIs (look for MedEl, Cochlear America and Advanced Bionics forums, FB groups, etc.) and ask them how they...

    First pair of hearing aids - Phonak brand

    Sorry about that. AB is Advanced Bionics, one of the companies that makes cochlear implants (CIs). They partnered with and is now owned by the company that makes Phonak hearing aids. I can use the accessories that I had with with my Phonak hearing aids with my CIs.
