Cyborg Queen Patient Expert

Las Vegas, Nevada
I'm known as Cyborg Queen. I have bilateral cochlear implants. I had surgery done in my left in January of 2008, I loved it so much that I had to get my right done in May 2008. Nothing was sweeter than the day that I finally heard crickets after 30 years of asking what does crickets sound like.
