Nichole's observation 3 Months Post Bilateral Activation - November 19, 2008

We were in the kitchen the other night getting dinner ready, when Nichole said

"I came home from school today and decided to watch TV before starting my homework. After about 5 minutes, I realized that the closed captions were not on. I hadn't even noticed!"

This from the girl who ALWAYS uses closed captions and gets annoyed if they are not present. In the past, she wouldn't even go to movies because they don't have captions. I guess that means that after three months with bilateral CIs, she is hearing better than before going bilateral. At least she is hearing well enough to understand television without the captions. Of course, once she realized they were off, she turned them on. Old habits are hard to break.
