My beloved husband has been hunkered down with his computer all this gray Sunday afternoon until just a few minutes ago. I was in the kitchen starting supper when he came in.
“I’ve learned more about cochlear implant technology than I could imagine existed,” he said, and began to share his day’s research with me. Buck has been wearing hearing aids for more than thirty years. His audiologist has acknowleddged there is no new hearing aid technology that will help him hear and understand language well enough to keep up with the accelerating hearing loss.
His first thought was, “No.” But that changed today. Tomorrow we’ll be calling Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville to set up tests and a consult with otolaryngologist, Dr. Larry Lundy.
First step of an exciting journey.
