Sometimes its so crazy you just gotta laugh!

Things can always get worst.
Sunday night my left hearing aid went dead. Nothing. Just Dead.
So, yesterday, I took it to the audies office (audiologist office). He confirmed my diagnosis.
"Its dead."
I sent it off to be repaired. At the small nominal fee of $283.00. That may sound like a lot. Its really not that bad. In Atlanta that would have cost me 4-500.
I did get an estimate for my new aids while I was there. About $1500.00-$2000.00 each. Again - not bad. Me and the audie are going to try "tweak" the ones I have to see if I can get a little more life out of them, to buy me some time to save the money.
I take Cam on Wednesday to get new ear molds made. More money.
Mon mon money Money Moooonnnney....

Hi AmyKay,
Did the audiologist give you a "loaner" hearing aid to help you out until you get yours back? I've heard that some places do that but mine doesn't.

The hubby and I are limping along with hearing aids that need to be repaired. I'm putting off the repairs as long as I can-- hopefully til after Christmas.
On another note, come and join us parents over at

Hello Librarian,
Yep, I got a "loaner". The only problem is its an analog hearing aid. Mine is digital... Everything is crazy sounding.
