Oh no!

I was getting ready to leave the house to go to work when my hearing aid
beeped at me. Oh great! Took out the old battery, and the battery cover
broke. Crap! I wasn't too happy about that. I put a new battery in, and
the cover is still somewhat useable. But I know it'll break off
completely soon enough. Drove to the audiologist real quick, to see if
the assistant cold replace the cover. This unexpected errand is making
me late for work, but I want to get the battery cover taken cared of.
This is the first time the battery cover broke the whole time I've had
the Supero hearing aid (since May 2004). Wowza.

Audie's assistant doesn't have replacement covers for my hearing aid, she did put in an order for a new one to be sent to her. Hopefully within a couple of days or so the battery cover will be fixed.

I've heard that it's harder to be deaf than to be blind because being deaf shuts one off from other people. I was in an audience recently in which the speaker wouldn't talk directly into the microphone. Someone who was hard of hearing yelled at him to please do so. When he didn't, she got up and left. How sad, but what else could she do?
