ooop....wrong ear!

Well, this really fascinates me! Kevin is now putting his ear on by himself 100% of the time. (Just the coil, not the ear piece). Because Kevin received his implant in Feb 2007, they did not yet have the id chip installed that will lock the processor if it is put on the wrong ear. I was always afraid of what would happen if he put the coil on the wrong ear. Would he be in pain, would he cry, what would happen? Well, this morning, he took one of his 'ears' and put it on his head. He looked at me, smiled and said, 'other ear', and put it on the correct ear. Wow! First off, I am so thankful that he didn't cry! Second, I guess it didn't cause him any pain. And finally, how in the world did he even know that the coil belonged on the other ear????? That just amazes me! There must be some kind of natural intuition that made him realize he needed to switch ears. I wish I could ask him what it sounds like. I can't wait for that explanation!!!

Wow! That is so amazing!

That is great. I can always tell when I put my processors on the "wrong" ear because it "sounds funny" and I "talk funny." No two ears are alike! It doesn't hurt. . .just feels "off."

Kevin is doing great!

Thanks for the insight, Laurie. I was always told that it might cause pain, so that is nice to know that it just feels odd. Thanks!

I can tell you...for Drew if the right ear is put on the left - awful pain! He cries and cries as if he is in serious pain. It is really sad, especially when I am the one that put it on the wrong ear. No problems if the left goes on the right - it's because of the power required to run the map.

Glad to hear that Kevin can tell the difference, without being in pain.
