Flying C.I

Ever since I lost the Small T-mic while while I were away in Greece. I had to manage with the normal C.I hook while waiting for the new T-mic from the nottingham implant centre to send me once they have reached for some more small t-mic hook.

because I have small ears, the other hooks I have always make the implant fall off. which before the small t-mic make the C.I stays on and never falls off.

When I was away last week on hoilday with family. I went on the bumpers at Golden Sands with a friend for a laugh.

Not realising that the C.I will fall off if I shook my head hard or put my head sideways. Wednsday last week my implant has been very Lucky!

I ended up having a small accident, which was unexpected - My friend claire and I were on the bumpers which we were bumping into each other for a laugh just before the end my car ended reversing as I moved the the steering wheel round to far, didn't realise that claire was coming from behind me she bumped in to me which was quite a hard bump that made my implant flying off my ear to the hard ground which could of be more damange ii if the car drive over it.

Lucky claire bumped into me towards the end and when it flew off the whole ride stop because it was only for 5 mins..... I was very shocked and if the car had rode over it I probably would of been upset. It made me realise that the implant mean so much to me and I didn't want anything to happen to it and NOT to do that again.

check the video of the Flying implant at the side of this page.

The next time I go to the implant centre hopefully they'll have some more small T-Mic and also I'll be asking for those huggies which alot of kids use to make the implant to stay on. Hopefully that be useful for me too.

anyway the interview video has been recorded but will be up at the end of this week, Richard and I been so busy on hoilday and haven't had the time to edit it. So, we're working on it this week.

i know exactly what you mean by how much your implant means to you! You sort of take it for granted dont u? then something happens to knock some sense into you and start taking care of it! It meant more to me when i lost the first cochlear implant and i got my 2nd one. im not taking any risks with this one like roller costers hehe xx

Oh my goodness! I would have panicked if my CI flew off like that! I went tubing in the Smoky Mountains over the weekend with my cousin and my sister and left my CI's in the car. I rode in complete silence for two hours but didn't want to take the risk of having them fall off and get wet! I ended up falling in the water at the end when I got out and got soaking wet from head to toe!

Hope you get your t-mic soon!
