I am late deaf. Started out life with average hearing, became HOH in my 20s and found out I was slowly going deaf. Now I wear a Cochlear Implant which helps me to be HOH. I had recruitment with hearing aids, they gave me horrendous tinnitus and headaches, now that is gone. Okay really, enough about me. I enjoy your blog very much. I hope you have the time & energy to keep it up. My hearing husband and I are adopting a toddler so I especially appreciate stories about dealing with your family. But all of it is so true to my own experiences, I just say "write on!" Okay, really lousy pun. Thanks for your insights and good humor. Best, Alicia Hi Cindy:

I like your perspective. I dropped out of blogging around the same time you did and I'm back at it (hopefully for good)...i know how life can get really busy and make blogging difficult. Hi Cindy,

I stumbled across your awesome blog a few days ago when I was searching for whether or not hearing aid batteries will still work after they've gone through the washer. Heads up? They didn't. Anyway, I read your whole blog over the past few days, and have proceeded to share your stories with friends. I, too, use and easylinks, but mine's for school. I was thinking of starting one of these blogs, as you have inspired me. I'm so glad you're back, and i hope you'll stay. Wow, I thought you disappeared.

This post was funny! I had a private room when I had to stay overnight after my last CI surgery. I tried to "buzz" the nurse several times during the middle of the night because I needed to go to the bathroom and couldn't go unassisted. No one came or answered my calls for a long time. Finally I realized that they probably didn't "get it" that I had my CI off and just had surgery on the other ear and couldn't hear them talking to me. Sure enough, when I put my CI on and buzzed the nurse, I heard "mffghuttssfhh" over the speaker by my bed. And I had to remind them that I could not hear without my "ears" and that they needed to look at me face to face to talk to me! Private rooms are nice, though! Glad to see you posting again.
