Fading Away

I hate to keep talking about my hearing loss, but that seems to be what is on my mind a lot. With good reason. In the last few weeks I've noticed another decline. It may be that I can't talk on the phone any more. Just ask Laura. We had a ridiculous "conversation" this morning which was basically Laura shouting into her phone one word at a time and me guessing what it was. I was able to help her, but anyone listening at Laura's end must have thought she was talking to a moron. If you talk to me in person and I have a blank look on my face, chances are I have no clue what you are saying...

I'm going to the library later on. It is time to get books or videos on sign language. Anyone want to join me in this venture?

Oh Lisa! :-(

At least this doesn't affect our online interactions.

Are you thinking about getting a TTD phone?

I'm starting to check into it. In the meantime, I love emails, blogging and facebook!

Oh, dear. I'm sorry to hear that. I know a little bit of sign language, back from when Mrs. Flanagan taught it at HSC, but it's been quite some time. If you do end up using it more, I'd gladly brush up.
