Hearing new stuff.      Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 8:00 PM
Today while watching a movie I heard tones that were part of the background music that I couldn't even hear with my right ("good") ear.  I know there is something like a 30-40% loss in that ear already but it is amazing I have already begun to hear something with my left ear that I don't hear with my right.  When I was cooking this evening.  I had the dishwasher running, the sink was filling up to wash pots & pans, the radio was on, a hum coming from the oven and a hum coming from the neighbor's heating unit.  It was almost too much.  It was so noisy it all almost made me sick.  Right now the noises that are coming through the fixed ear sound like they are coming from a long tunnel with someone on a bullhorn at the end of it, kinda like a messed up fast food ordering box.  It is strange but so lovely that I am beginning to hear these things.  I also heard a plane - it was so loud I thought it was on T.V. - pretty soon I realized it was outside and it continued to get louder and louder.  I can't remember that last time I heard a plane outside from inside the house.  How crazy!
