Priscilla Gets Bionic Ears: Report #11

The following is by Priscilla Gilmore, who recently got cochlear implants and has been reporting back, starting here.

I am hearing so many new sounds now. I walk outside and hear the jays screaming a warning (and other, nicer bird sounds, too!). And the ticking in the stove when you light the gas. It is exciting! Voices are sounding better - less artificial, but I am still reading lips, I think. 

[I've sent Priscilla a link to this entry, which accounts for why she may never stop lip reading, even if her implants work perfectly].
