How does the hearing aid work? Well, behind her ear, there is a mic that picks up the sound and the sound goes through the tube and goes into her ear. At times she would get the hissing sound especially when somebody is using handphone around. There is a volume control button; if she wants to be nasty and doesn't like to hear what you are saying, she can simply turn the volume really down! I hope she wouldn't do it to me.
The hearing aid uses a little battery which lasts around 10 days. Luckily we can get a free supply of batteries from the GP or from the hearing centre.
At night it has to be taken out as well as taking her shower. If it gets wet, there are gadgets supplied to dry up the hearing aid.
One problem is settled. I'm still worried about her knocked knees as yesterday, on our way back from the hearing centre, I have to carry her to the bus stop as she was in pain walking quite a distance. (Luckily Sanya was kind enough to send us there and we did not have to take the bus to get there). The other day, during her class' excursion to Wollaton Park, the other kids had to walk and Adnin get to ride in her teacher's car. While walking at the park, she had to be carried by her teacher as she could not stand the pain anymore. Nonetheless, she enjoyed it and kept on telling us about it over and over again...
