It's been a while I made a post to this blog - and it is certainly been a wonderful journey with CI's. It is already more than five years being a bilateral and I am very pleased with it.
I've had a "re-mapping" of my CI several times and my hearing gets better. To tell the truth, the hearing gets better; but later on it goes back to the same state as it was before the re-mapping. So I need to "trick" my cochlear to hear better....
And there are some quirks that I learned from accidental or by expermenting the CI mapping. For example, one would expect to hear better by turning up the volume. Not the case for CI's - I actually hear much better by turning the volume down! By turning the volume down, my cochlear becomes more sensitive to the sounds so I am learning to hear new sounds.
As for my AB's Harmony with 120 virtual channels, I am certainly a lucky person to hear better everyday and I hope many more will get CI's when their times comes.

A friend of mine who went to my old school, Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf, made a great informative web site about hearing loss. It is intended as an informative source on hearing loss and is for everybody. It is at http://www.nolimitstexas.org/ Please check it out and get well-informed on hearing loss!

This was found at digg.com:
"I recently received a “cold” call from a web marketing firm that suddenly took a turn for the worse.
Also, a little background: I have what is medically described as “profound” hearing loss in one ear, and “severe” hearing loss in the other. For the most part I can do OK with telephone conversations, but occasionally need to ask a person to repeat something. This is especially true when the caller has an accent (relative to mine), or the call is coming from an IP phone.

It is thanksgiving time, and there are many that we are thankful - and for the sounds of life around us.
We are thankful for the engineers and their leadership to invent and improve the cochlear implants we wear today.
We are thankful for the amazing doctors who put the implants in our heads and become a part of hearing world.
We are thankful that we have friends and family that supports us during our cochlear implant journey.
