This and that.

                                     

Good Afternoon, I seem not to have had a moment to myself all week. On Monday at last my hearing appointment arrived. It has been a dreadful six weeks with these new hearing aids. I have not been able to hear anything properly not been able to drive because I was over revving the engine, could not hear what Stuart was saying to me he was having to shout and if it had not been for the subtitles on the TV that would have been a no no too.  When I saw the audiologist on Monday the first thing she said was after i told her my complaints was I am not surprised you are not hearing I did not set your aid high enough for your hearing loss.  I was very good and did not loose my temper. She said it was done like that to get me used to them before she turned them up but I think six weeks a bit too long to have to wait.  However all is well now and I have them set on high so for the time being all is well and I can hear again in fact I am having to turn them down a bit. Stuart and I have both needed phone appointments with the doctor to discuss new meds and they are away late so that keeps you in a bit.  We were going to Perth today as we did not get yesterday or at least we only passed through on our way to Monifieth (See my Birdwatching Journal for the whole story) and as we picked up Ellen at 3pm did not get my round of the shops only Tesco's, but it is raining so hard don't think we will bother as I am only really needing shampoo and that can wait. (All exciting stuff this) lol. Will have to get started to pack as I like to take my time incase I forget something which I usually do but still.  Better go now and make some coffee. There's a new entry in my birdwatching journal today you might enjoy. Love and take care

Hi Joan,
Doctors can be so stupid at times. I feel your frustration. Glad your hearing is improved and hope it lasts for you. I am going to read your birdwatching journal next,
Kate.

Hello Joan,  How frustrating for you no to be able to hear with your new aids, it might have been easier if you`d been told what to expect.  I`m glad it`s better for you know, 6 weeks was a long time to wait.  I`ll just pop over to your other journal now to read your latest entry. :o)

That was silly of the doctor not to tell you what to expect, it must have been awful not being able to hear for six weeks. I'm glad you got them adjusted and can hear again! Hope you had a good day at Perth today. I visited your other journal this morning, the pelican was beautiful! Jeannette xx

She could have at least told you that she hadn't set your hearing aids loud, the six weeks may not have seemed so bad - although six weeks not being able to hear does sound awful, poor you - if you had known why it was you couldn't hear.  Am glad they're all sorted out now.

Glad your hearing is sorted - I think your right 6 weeks is a bit long to have to get used to them!!  Well done for not losing your temper ;-)  Sounds like you've had a busy week, even with the bad weather.
