In February, 2020 when I bought hearing aids, I was unable to get one into my oddly-shaped right ear canal. Therefore, I only have one for my left ear.
When Seth visited recently, he asked me if I was wearing my hearing aid because I was saying “what?” a lot. I did have my hearing aid in. I decided there was something wrong with it and took it back to be fixed.
Unfortunately, the hearing aid was fine. What was not fine, is that I had not one, not two, but three hearing aid domes (which must be changed frequently) deep inside my left ear canal. The hearing aid specialist took out the first two, but I had to have the third removed by a physician. That was painful.
The domes for my hearing aid are tiny, and one could easily come off when I put it into my ear. When I saw that one was gone, I just assumed I had dropped it.
It won’t happen again.
