Monday, I had an hearing test with my new hearing aids…my sentence comprehension with my old hearing aids – 48%.
The new hearing aids – 74%.
Over the last few days (especially today), I’ve become more adept at recognizing songs, or even recognizing the artist (even if it’s a song that I haven’t heard before). Like earlier today, I was like “oh that sounds like Oasis”…and it was.
I’m also listening more in class to my classmates speaking, instead of relying as much on the interpreter.
Now I wonder what will happen if I do decide to get the CI. Will I once again miss the cutoff because I’m doing too well with the hearing aids (like what happened back in 1997)? They said the sentence comprehension test for the CI is different than the one that I got. So we will see how that affects my eligibility.
