Amazing Audiologist Visit
October 29, 2013

The trip to Houston today called for a very early departure from home in order to be at the audiologist in Houston by 2:00 this afternoon.  It was a good trip up and there was spare time before the appointment to do a little shopping at Lifeway Christian Bookstore and Wal-Mart.  There was also time for lunch at Chick-fil-A. 

The visit with the audiologist was almost 2 1/2 hours long.  A lot was accomplished.  There were a couple of real problem areas I was dealing with.  One was using the phone.  We probably spent 45 minutes to one hour working on the phone issues.  We made a lot of progress and among other things found a glitch in my sound processor where I get too much static when trying to use the T-coil setting when using the phone.  The audiologist, Sherri Taxman programmed another sound processor to my settings and let me try it.  There was a difference.  She will order a new sound processor for me and it will arrive already programmed to my settings,  Awesome!

Another area where I felt things might not be working right is the "Focus" setting on the remote that I use to adjust the sound processor.  In testing that in the "sound-proof booth" today, it seemed as if that setting wasn't doing what it should, so maybe the new sound processor will help.  There were many other areas we worked on and it was a very successful visit.

The rest of the day was spent registering for the Quilt Festival and having dinner with wonderful friends.  At the Quilt Festival, I was able to get a pass to take a rolling cart on the display floor so I would not end up carrying too much weight with my weak arm.  A note from my doctor took care of that.
