Me Visiting the Art Museum: No Ears Necessary

Five months before I started this blog I knew almost nothing about cochlear implants.  Then I got one.  I’m sharing my particular experience in this blog because, back when I was wandering the internet trying to understand what I was getting into, I would have wanted to read this diary.  To start reading from the beginning, click on the first entry below.  To read the most recent posts, click the BLOG tab on the sidebar.
