Friday Mom got new hearing aids. You would think this is a good thing and in some ways it is. She has complained that they are too loud – adjustable, she has complained that they are too big – molded to her ear so how is this possible? Today she called me all upset because she could not find her hearing aid. EEEK!!!! Not even paid for yet! Fortunately before I responded to her announcement I asked her to explain. Guess what? She lost the old one! Who cares? But I talked for quite awhile without convincing her it was ok and THEN realized the reason I wasn’t getting anywhere was because she could not hear me because she did not have the new hearing aids in!
