Today, the curtain came up on an “unheard” of event. My right ear heard sound.
And I did create a bit of a scene. It was, admittedly, an emotional moment for me.
This morning at KUMC(Kansas Univ Medical Center) I literally said to my audiologist…”Rachel, lets fire it up and see what she can do !!
Then when the first sounds registered with my brain all the bravado was gone. I was a bit overwhelmed with wonder and gratitude for everyone and everything that came together to get me to this threshold.
I was told, “Today, we just want you to hear ‘something.’ Your brain will figure out what it is and it will just keep getting better.” And then when I could distinguish “words”, was when I knew for certain that this was going to work for me !
I am going to be able to hear better.
Sounds are not “normal”… tinny and a little fuzzy…but discernible ….and its just the first day.
Hearing is supposed to peak in six months to a year, but can continue to improve beyond that. Especially for music.
That’s now the Holy Grail for me. I so miss music.
So Act II is underway and there will be no spoilers in this review……we’ll all just all have to wait to see how it turns out.
