Told my lipreading group about the MRI scan and again received tremendous support. My friend wondered if I would like to meet with her and her language tutor so that I knew what to expect if I am able to have the implant. We agreed to make a date.
Now have three more appointment dates!
One on Monday 12th June for a hearing test and speech assessment; one for another consultation with the consultant and one for a counselling session with a lady I knew from way back in the 1980’s when I first lost my hearing. Life is funny sometimes.
Bad news from the insurance – they will not cover the cochlear implants. We will appeal but must be prepared to fund it ourselves.
Tomorrow is my speech assessment. This is crucial as a cochlear implant is only considered if it will give you better hearing than you already have! I confess I am nervous about this. How will I do? It’s strange to be wanting my hearing test results to be bad. Well what will be will be. I will know tomorrow, possibly.
