Lipreading Practice

Update for last month

07 May 2018

Once again I have had computer problems and also the last few weeks have been very busy.

On the whole I am managing very well although there are still some situations that are difficult. If the acoustics are bad it is difficult to hear accurately BUT it is difficult for everyone not just me!!

I have been to many large group events and I have managed quite well. My husband was awarded the OBE for services to overseas industry and innovation in the contact lens industry. We went to Buckingham Palace last Friday and it was the Queen presenting the awards. It was an amazing day! We spoke to Sir Paul McCartney and to Dame Darcey Bussell. They were both very friendly and were receiving honours themselves. The atmosphere was great and the spectacle with the yeoman of the Guard (beefeaters) and other military personnel was so full of pageantry. It was such a privilege to be there.

Back to earth now.   Next Thursday 10th May I have my left cochlear implant.   I am so hoping that it will be as successful as my right one. I will start a fresh blog for my journey with is one.

May 14th to 20th is Deaf Awareness Week.   There may be events organised in your area so please take a look.

Hope all of you are enjoying a very relaxed Bank holiday weekend and the beautiful warm weather.
