July 2010

So folks, I am thinking this might be my last post on this blog. I have reached the point where there is not really much new stuff to report in the last six months

I think I have reached the peak, and plateaued. Both implants will not get any better or different now in both left / right ears . It has reached its "PEAK" like as in climbing Mount Everest - cant go any higher.

I may get new mappings once a year. So I guess you could say ‘watch this space’ – I may come back with a new posts

Until then, bye, and thanks for reading my blog and I hope it has helped you

June 2010

Today, three years ago Professor Graeme Clark, inventor of Cochlear Implant gave me back my hearing, even today I am forever grateful to be able to listen / hear sounds from all directions.

May 2010

May 2010 will be a busy month with masters assignments - sigh

30 / 5 / 2010 I did five hour 130 km bike ride in rain / wind and surprised how both my cochlear implants survived the beating.

January 2010

Welcome to the new year 2010

I had bilateral mapping done today - very small tweaks here and there, nothing major in terms of leaps and bounds, I have pretty much reached my limit and hearing capabilities.

One minor change was the program settings - P1 everyday P2 noise P3 focus

One of my processors was showing wear and tear around the on/off button and rubber flap where you open / close for plugging in accessories. All covered by warranty.

I recently did a Charity bike ride called Amy's ride in Geelong in Victoria, 120 kms over four hours and the brief wet weather really tested out my bilateral processors and both were dry at the end.
