We're back!

Hi there, sorry for my long absence. We've been busy. Since my last post we celebrated Mischief's 2nd birthday, travelled home to Canada for 7 weeks, where we caught up with family & friends for Christmas & New Years, shortly after we returned, DH and I went up to Sydney for a quick jaunt. We spent a couple of nights at Star City which was fabulous, they upgraded us and we ended up with a couple of unexpected extras.

We saw Mamma Mia and I had a couple of tests done to explore whether or not I'm eligible for the 2nd cochlear. The first test went well, since I only succeeded in 8% word recognition in the right ear. With my left ear (with the cochlear) I succeeded in 68% recognition, apparently the average for cochlear users is 38% so the cochlear is going really well for me, but the hearing aid, not so much! The second test I'm a bit more apprehensive about, it was a balance test to see how much the left cochlear had compromised the left ear, if it's too much then they won't interfere with the right ear, I figured that it would go very smoothly, unfortunately it didn't go as well as I had expected, but I haven't heard anything yet, so I just need to wait and see.

So now that we're home, we're slowly getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully I'll have some photos soon.
