Sounds like you're on top of it. Good to know you use TV captions. They take some getting used to and some people quite trying. Have you ever been evaluated for a cochlear implant in the ear that has no hearing?

Yes I have asked my ear specialist about a cochlear implant and I am not a good candidate as I have an inner ear disease called cholesteatoma but I have in both ears and coming up July 4 I’m going for the fourth surgery on my left ear to repair the damage that this disease does & he’s got a little trick up his sleeve I don’t remember the exact words but if it works he may actually be able to bring a little bit of hearing back into the ear and another kind lady on here was talking about a Cros receiver which I’ve never heard of and I’m going to ask him about that And see if it is something that would work for my left ear which has very minimal hearing.
Thank you so much for your kind words and support I appreciate them!
