The Importance of Getting Help When You Need It
We had a patient that had been wearing hearing aids for several years. They really hadn’t helped her enough for the last two years, but she had put off getting new hearing aids because she was getting by. Not hearing great, but hearing better than without her hearing aids.
This February, she decided that it was finally time to replace her old hearing aids. I was happy that she was able to hear well and she was thrilled that she could hear so well. She was enjoying activities that she had given up because she couldn’t hear. Her life was full again. When I saw her in March she was all smiles. She was the bubbly happy person that she had been when I first met her years ago.
She passed away suddenly a few days after I saw her in March. I was shocked and saddened. She was so happy the last time I saw her. I am happy that she could hear so well, even though it was for such a short time. I only wish she had gotten new aids sooner. Her life would have been so much richer.
