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.

I just found your site through a member on CI Circle. Your posts have helped us tremendously in deciding whether to do simulataneous implants or just one for our son Aiden (9 mths). He does well with his HAs (about 40-45 db), but not well enough for all sounds of speech. We've been doing a lot of research on whether to go bilateral or bimodal. Reading experiences such as Nichole's story reassures us in our decision of thinking that bilateral is better. It was nice to see Nichole's letter to her audi too and hearing it straight from her! Thanks for sharing!
