I beat them to it, calling as soon as their lunch hour was over: had the new earmolds come in?

She checked. The mail had just delivered them, sure, come on down.

It’s the left side that’s had the broken second speaker for who knows how long and it was the left one that Janet, one of the audiologists, handed me first. The two hearing aids bluet00th between themselves: you turn the right one up to make both louder and the left one down to make both softer. I had no idea what the effect on the right might be–or might not be, for that matter, to have had the left one damaged like it had been.

I put its replacement in.

Holy. COW. It was that instant. And I told her that.

Okay, now the other one.

Wow wow wow and wow. WOW!

On the way home, that sound the car was making when I do this: has it always been like that? Did I just not know?

Best $213 I’ve spent in a long long time. And as I sit here writing this, with Richard at the computer next to mine, I’m marveling: who knew he typed so loud?

That’s great! So glad to hear that they are working! There is so much to be missed (as you know) when you cannot hear.

Sending a prayer of gratitude! How wonderful that technology works for you, not against you!

I know you are making the most of these new re-discoveries. 🙂
