"I have beaten XDR-TB. I am now working on my dreams of being a nurse."
My cochlear implant switch on was on the 20th of March, it was a very emotional day!
My audiologist was telling me exactly what she was doing, 1st it was small soft sounds which I heard clearly, then it was time for the big moment. 1st time hearing her, and her voice was clear – mental note; never really trust anything you read on goggle. Of course I did my own research before the switch on.
Hearing my mom speak for the 1st time in 5 years brought tears to my eyes, tears of joy :)
I finished treatment for pre-XDR TB a year ago, what a celebration!
