Now Hear This!

Wynn's now using hearing aids - the molds are her own choice of colors (red, yellow, and orange mixed together.) The microphone & electronics sit behind the outer ear, with a little tube to carry the audio through the mold into her ear canal.

The aids themselves are loaners from the Lions' Club for a 6-month period. We'll know one way or another whether she'll need hearing aids permanently well before then, however.

Next steps - a follow-up visit and recalibration if needed in about two weeks.  Then, later in May, we'll shoot for surgery to restore her right eardrum.  If that's successful, she won't need the aids.
