Reddit again

It seems that Reddit has posted my vid again.


And since all my mobile phone posts, I actually got myself an iPhone which doesn't have T-switch at all but I can hear well enough if the volume is up really loud. Still prefer sms's. But I love all the apps :)

Hey, I came from where the Narwhal Bacons.

After seeing your video, I was so happy for you that you can hear! I bet it's an amazing experience. All the best and I bid you welcome to a whole new world... I just hope you don't listen to Justin Bieber and actually like it :(

I've never listened to Bieber and not likely to ;)

Hey I wanted to let you know how your video really inspired me, I'm a cochlear implant recipient as well, and because of you I started a blog before I activated and now I've got it running. Your pretty awesome!! I also video taped my activation so that others may witness the miracle of cochlear implants. Thank you again!

Nikki said...

That is fantastic Connor, I'm just having a read through your blog now. Congratulations!

Hi Nikki,

I just wanted to let you know, I've had my CI for about 4 years now and its a complete godspeed to hear once again - I too was late deafened at age three and four prospectively.

I've been getting a couple of hits back regarding my CI as well from a posting I made on your video not to long ago. A couple of them have been inquiring minds about the Cochlear Implant technology and its advancements.

I'm joyed with the gift of hearing after forty-three years and thirty-nine at the time at my activation in 2007.

And yes, music is music to my ears as well and listening to the sounds of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, was a complete 360 turn around from what I was hearing with my hearing back than over 40 years ago.

Even my Mother is amazed at how much better I hear now, compared to what I was hearing back than - and, I hardly lip as much as I used too.

Good luck on your CI Journey and the gift of hearing. Btw, have you been able to solve your problem with the AUTO-TELECOIL on your N5?

-- Jeff

Hi Jeff, glad the CI has worked out so well with you too!!

Sounds like you are doing wonderfully :)

As for the N5 autocoil, I have not bothered with it as I need to have the remote with me all the time. I just switch it on and off manually. Is that what you mean?
