Two Year CI Anniversary

Today is the two year anniversary of my first CI activation. My audiogram has gone from this to this to THIS! (see below and click on picture to enlarge)

I know I've said this before and will say it again - I never ever dreamed that I would hear this well in my lifetime - EVER. I've gone from a severe/profound hearing loss to a mild hearing loss with one CI, to almost normal hearing with both CI's. I have truly experienced a miracle because of medical technology and only God could make this happen. Nothing is impossible with God - NOTHING! So, when you think that God doesn't care or hear your prayers, just remember that He is always moving forward ahead of you and making plans for something better, even if it takes 40+ years. And for that, I am forever grateful! Alleluia, Amen!

WOW!!! I had to readjust my eyes! I am so so so happy for you! I can only imagine how you felt getting that test back. I would have walked out clicking my heels like little irish men. A huge hearty cyber-hug for a job well done :)

I can imagine your excitement over the "new and improved" hearing you have. My audiogram has a sharp drop from the left side to nearly the bottom in the left ear. It looks like a big drop from a rollercoaster. :) The right ear pretty much fluctuates in the 70-80 range.

I am so happy for you that you can hear things. I do know what you mean about being surprised from behind. :)

Happy CIversary.
