Being an active participant in conversations at restaurants and other public places again is a blessing. I was pleasantly surprised to see how new technology disguises the presence of hearing aids. And, I was surprised how easily I accepted them with only a minor “getting used to them” period. As I became used to my hearing aids, I even began to show them off. We are much happier now that I have hearing aids. Hearing our grandson Max, say, “I love you, Grandma” is the best!
