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.


  1. Fingers are crossed that everything goes well and you can go for the second cochlear...

    Cool you had a great trip in Sydney... we saw Lion King in Vegas and it was AMAZING!!

  2. I hope the news comes back to be good news!

    I didn't know you were from Canada...guess I hadn't read your profile before or I'm paying close enough attention (often the case!)

    Wishing you a great February...
