Are You Considering a Cochlear Implant?

Are you considering a Cochlear Implant?

If your hearing loss has gotten to the point where hearing aids are not helping, then you may want to consider an implant. This decision is a life-long commitment. For more information read, “Steps to a Cochlear Implant.)

Start with an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor to see if you qualify. You will be appointed to apply with a surgeon to do the operation. They are few and far between and you may have to travel some to your nearest doctor.

I spent a day at Vanderbilt University Hospital get my getting my cochlear implant adjusted. The activation date was Jan. 5, 2017. Now that I have worn the implant for three months, it needed a number of adjustments to improve hearing perception.

Dr. Sara C. Unrein, Cochlear Implant Audiologist, gave many brilliant tips on how to personally adjust to the implant for better hearing. The technology is amazing and incredible. The unit partners with the Phonic behind the ear hearing aid on the left side. One button can adjust both sides to a comfortable level.

The Tele’coil system works wonders when talking on the phone, hooking up to the computer, radio or FM system where ever I can plug in the cord.

If you live in the greater Chattanooga area, you can make visit with me. We are forming a Cochlear Ear Association in Chattanooga along with the Hear Now Café.  We have several wonderful audiologists available to ask questions. Workshops on Lip Reading will be scheduled in the fall.

  1. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women? American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

  4. I’m an autistic person and one of the things I enjoy doing is writing funny/random crazy stories that make me laugh (maybe they make you laugh too?) My blog is at http://www.AutisticWritings.com Maybe you’d also consider giving a small donation to help me survive? Right now I can only accept donations through Bitcoin and my Bitcoin Wallet ID is 175Gku7YvNySTQJht43Qefvorjj2URLKqP

  5. I turned around and took off running into the desert area behind the gas station. Bullets were flying past me so I turned around, pulled out a machine gun, and started rocking out like Rambo. I mowed down 4 Mexicans as they chased me and I sent them straight to hell with my machine gun. I got far enough away from the exploding gas station which was now on massive fire and ducked down behind a large cactus and looked back and saw a police helicopter flying towards my location with it’s search lights beaming down towards me. I knew they would discover me within about 60 seconds so I had no choice. I pulled out my portable rocket launcher, loaded it, and then fired a guided mini-missile and blew up the chopper. Right before it hit the helicopter I saw the horrified expressions of the two pilots, one male and one female, as they saw the missile coming and knew they were about to get blown straight to hell.
