Wow! Great Super Bowl. (Funny commercials too). I went to a Cochlear American seminar in Columbia, MD, this weekend. Saw my friends Dee Dee, Megan, and Ginger, who were big reasons I chose Cochlear America for my implant and processor. The room was filled with other implant recipients both young and old. I was familiear with most of the information presented but my daughter took notes anyway for me. There were many questions from the audience, along with some complaints. I felt a tinge of guilt listening to them: I just might be the most satisfied customer and am really happy with my implant. I know everyones experiences are different and the circumstances of how they came to get their implant is probably also different. I will be signing up to be a volunteer with the organization. This blog has been fun and I will continue it, but I feel it is time to try to reach out further to help others who are considering, or already have recieved a cochlear implant. There are two people right now I am trying to convince: Patricia Downs, a friend I meet on Facebook, and Gerry Fuller - my dentist!
