Where are we today ?Much warmer last night and a bright sunny day today, I think the cold weather is now behind us. I have a doctors' appointment in Kitchener at 10 am this morning so we are on the go. Doc says I am upright and breathing so that's good news. Then at 11:30 pick up my new hearing aides. Supplied every 5 years by Worker's Compensation.
Wow are these ever nice! State of the art, new technology. I can hear again almost as good as new! Never as good as your own hearing but certainly better than not. Its really too bad that years ago we were not made aware of hearing protection when working in a noisy environment.
We also purchased a special little gizmo (not covered by WSIB) and some hearing specialists call it a "Wife Saver". It can be very frustrating for myself and my wife when we cannot communicate , especially in the car and Rv when travelling. With road noise etc, I cannot understand what she is saying, directions and such. This gizmo is a tiny microphone that she can clip on her blouse and when she is talking I can hear her directly into my hearing aides (bluetooth technology), way too cool! She does not have to shout, I can hear her, (she can whisper in my ear from a distance!) and I can even usually understand her too. It works when she is in another room too. Sure helps us out a lot. (ps: I can also turn it off too if I don't want to listen to her). Love modern technology! We tried it out on the way back to New Hamburg and works awesome!
Stopped by her mom and dad's place for a visit then back to the farm. Suzie got to sit outside with Sandy and our great Nephew Ben in the sun and out of the wind for while this afternoon too.

That was our awesome day with much warmer weather, got our appointments out of the way, and enjoyed more family time. Thanks for stopping by again, hope you had a great day too!
