Okay, I have been asked what he got and if it works Yes and Yes. Here is some photo's of what it looks like with out the BAHA and with the BAHA. Now the scar you see is from the brain surgery not the BAHA all they did for the BAHA was to punch a small whole in the scalp and the drill the pin into the head/skull bone then it had to integrate into the bone for a few months before he could have the BAHA to place on it. Now as I have said before he does NOT have hearing on the right side in the right ear he never will again because the vestibular schwannoma being taken off of all the nerves took the hearing out. IF he wears it he can hear things on that side of him in his left ear but, he may not know where it is coming from and if the place is really noisy it can become to overwhelming and he turns it off. that round spot which looks like a speaker is the on/off button it all so vibrates when it is bummed or touched so he can not really lay down with it on or sleep with it on it will pop off and drive you nuts if you fall asleep with it on and it touches the pillow or anything really.
Thank you, for asking about it I have meant to post about it but, you all know how life is it gets in the way of being on-line. hahahaha
I can tell you this means a lot to me to read a friend sent this link to me in an e-mail. I am on the Marq end of this story and it is just as hard coming from that side. When I woke up after my traumatic brain injury in the hospital and I was not the me I had once been it was so very hard for me. I was so very scared, angry and confused it hurt all over and it was not from any injuries that you could see. I did not know how to tell the ones I loved all of this. I have learned so much and I have come a long way in the last nineteen months since this happened but, I am not all the way back I do fight to be back every day. Even if I seem angry, scared, confused or to happy at times it is still me trying to get back what I lost that day. I have come to find that I may not get it back, I will not stop trying to get it back but what I build from this day forward is stronger through the love and help of my family and friends.
Seeing it from Melody's side helps me a lot because as we all know men to do talk to much about feelings and I know that my husband has had to deal with so much from me he is strong like Melody he has stood there rock solid in front of me when I have needed it most. He has cried with me held me tight and been scared himself with all that I went through and then to top it all of and find out that he had a tumor and needed brain surgery just six short months after mine really helped to push me forward in my recovery. Mostly because I am a care taker it is what I do best.
