Yesterday I got a new mapping. Would you know, making sure that both ears hear what they are supposed to hear is quite the challenge?? If one side is "louder" than the other, that one side eventually takes on all of the "work". That's the side your brain pays attention to, anyway. Reduce the volume on that "louder" side and it sounds too low for a little bit...but it eventually catches up again. And that's just the hardware side. The wetware still has to do its part! 😜
My first #CIJourney1 was an amazing adventure. I've had some awesome ups and a couple of downsides but its been an amazing ride. But the end result is that now, the ear that, for most of my life, heard almost nothing, is now the dominant ear and my left ear feels neglected. 😊
Well, now I have the left ear implanted as well and I'm realizing a new robustness of sounds. First, the speed at which that ear adjusted to being implanted has been nothing short of amazing from my perspective. Add in the stereo quality and...I ended yesterday exhausted.
It continues to be a process...it will continue to get better and better. If it doesn't, I'll be dead.
As always, thank y'all for listening! 🤟🏾💖🤟🏾
