Not so silent, after all

Whew. What a relief.

I took my hearing aid to the audiologist today, and the situation is not as bad as it might have been. The innards are still working. It's just the casing that was destroyed. So the audiologist took a new impression and will send that to the factory, along with the smooshed hearing aid with its electronical guts, and they'll recreate the thing for me. Not cheap, but a fraction of the cost of a completely new one.

So possibly by this time next week, I'll be able to hear with both ears again. At least, to the extent that a deafish guy with hearing aids can hear.

Thanks, luka. Now I won't have to stare at people's mouths to read their lips.

Actually, I'll still do that. I've been doing that for so long that I can't keep myself from it. I've noticed that it makes other people uneasy, but ... I ... CAN'T ... STOP!

Wow! Thanks! I've been looking for good prices on roulette wheles and stuff like that!

Too bad you're anonymous!

I'm glad to hear your hearing won't remain impaired... get it. Hear, hearing... no. Didn't think so.

I wiped my glasses with a scratchy material forgetting they weren't scratch resistant.

Now, everything looks sort of.... scratchy....

Even the scratch-resistant ones aren't, although the modern coatings do seem to help.

But then my hearing aids were supposed to be so strong that a truck etc.
