With my dad at home on hospice care, I am so thankful for my cochlear implants.
Why........I can use the phone to talk to mom or my sisters two, three or more times daily. I can tell through the sound of mom's voice how she is feeling. That is a blessing to really hear her! (I spent my life without the phone, each day I feel more and more comfortable on it.) I heard tears yesterday. I'm going home Friday for the long weekend to hug my dad and say goodbye. I'm sure he is waiting to say goodbye to Jenna and myself. He needs to find his peace.
My dad passed away at 3:53 P.M. August 26, 2008. May he watch over us from heaven. I love you dad.
