Summer 2008

Hey Guys,
Sorry for the long delay in posting. Everything is just cool here. How is every ones summer going? Hope great.
Next week will be my first vaca of the summer and we will start it off with 4 days of camping :)
The weather has been real nice, so hopefully it stays like that while camping, don't want rain those days, arrrr.
Kids are enjoying the time off, I'm enjoying not having to pick them up from school or making those late night sandwiches:)
As far as the CI goes, everything is just great. Had my one year appointment about a month ago and everything was good. A few program changes, but nothing out of the ord. I did have a program included that's good for music and long distance hearing, like on the golf course :) Seems ok so far. I elected not to have a hearing test. Don't care much for results. Seems to me that when I'm tested in a sound proof room, no noise of any kind, those result changes a lot when out in the real world. Background noise and different voices change everything. But it still feels good scoring 90% on the words test compared to 10% without a CI :) in that quiet room :)
I talked (on the phone) to one of my best friends last week, I was his best man on his wedding day. Just so you know he is a real best friend, lol.. We talked for about one hr. The last time I talked to him was about 8 years ago. Very long time. Especially considering we talk everyday at one time when we were young and I could hear. Conversation went great. Every now and then he would say, "Can you hear me", made me laugh. He also said, "So that thing is working pretty good huh?" LOL
Yeah it is!
My next mapping will be one year from now. Wow! My audi told me it's like graduating, they set me free:) One year seems like a long time. But I'm sure it will come up fast.
Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know I'm still here. Life is good. I'm hearing, Yankees are playing better ball, All-Star game at the Stadium, don't miss it, lol....
Take Care,

Congratulations on your one year anniversary. You sound like you are doing well!

I still need to be mapped every 3-4 months for small and minor adjustments. It also give my audiologist a chance to check for any defects, worn cords, etc. before the warranty runs out.

Have fun camping and listen for an owl for me. I've yet to hear one!

It sounds like you're doing great...it's awesome to hear from you again! At my last mapping the audiologist told me not to come back until December...that felt weird, cutting the apron strings a bit ;). I know I can call her if I need anything but she has been my lifeline of sorts over the past couple of years!
Enjoy your vacation...hope you have sunshine and clear skies all week!
