Forgot to include this in the previous post (I think).
I’m hearing so much better. Things are really coming to me – and fast. Ever since I picked up the slack a couple of days ago and started wearing it 10-12 hours a day, the sounds are learned everyday, and things are really starting to come together. I expect at this pace, I should be at 60% of my potential by August. That may seem like a far time away, but I am going on a road trip in July that will be 10-12 days long, depending how much driving we get done in the first couple of days and the the day we leave Vegas.
I am probably not going to bring my CI to Vegas. I have perfectly good reasons as to why not.
1) I am going to two clubs that are guaranteed to be crazy, and packed, and this is bad news for a CI.
2) I have a reputation for breaking or losing my phone in every Vegas trip I take.
3) I like to drink and have a good buzz going, and that would be really irresponsible for a rookie CI user to keep his CI on while drinking, potentially not noticing it might have fallen off.
4) It’s Vegas, baby, Vegas. The CI can take a little vacation.
I am really, really excited by my progress up to date, and I can’t wait to see what it’s like come August.
