Got the new Controller

We got the new controller and coil yesterday. It was not an easy task. I had to once again call FedEx and have them keep it at the facility so I could pick it up there. I checked on line to see that they had tried to deliver the package, but they didn't leave a note!

I put the new controller and coil on his right ear and now we will see what happens!


  1. Jake is having a hard time hearing, really tough....but his checkup was fine and audio was good. Remapped a little for the 2000Hz area. I hope we ain't having internal issues, it is 13 years old now.

  2. I understand that. I feel the same way about Elijah's ear.
