I experienced three really big milestones in the last few weeks and didn’t want them to let them go unannounced. I was in the car one day and actually answered the phone twice while I was driving. I could carry on the conversation and drive too. Of course the point is I could hear while other stuff was going on where as before I would have had to pull over and put on my telecoil phone hooks and concentrate hard. I felt pretty cool picking up the phone and talking like all the other reckless drivers out there. The other two milestones were two phone conversations. I don’t talk on the phone much but am getting to like it more. I called my mother-in-law to wish her a happy birthday and we chatted for a long time! I am use to her voice of course but still its a big deal. Yesterday a woman had asked me about doing an interview for a paper she is writing. I told her we would try the phone but could skype if it didn’t work. Well, I talked for a long time and only asked her to repeat a few times. Now she is use to hearing impaired people and told me she would talk slowly but I’m still thrilled. So those are my big milestones, so exciting.
