Face masks, glasses and hearing aids do not play well together.
But now that I don't need glasses (cataract surgery rendered them unnecessary), I can't blame them. However, the hearing aids can be easily removed or scalawagged (It is too a word) when you remove a mask.
Such was the case when I got a massage on Friday. The masseur touched
my hearing aids and partly dislodged one. I put it back afterward, but when I got
into the car, and removed my mask, the hearing aid fell out.
I couldn't put it back in while I was driving, so I dropped it into my cup holder for
safe-keeping until I got home. Of course, when I got home, it slipped my mind.
About 10:00 pm last night, I realized I wasn't hearing as well as usual. The left
hearing aid was missing. I remembered that it had dislodged, but not where I left it.
My daughter said "Can you ping it?" So I decided to check the hearing aid app......
and to my surprise, It had a function called "Find my hearing aids." Once I clicked
that, two small circles appeared....one red and one green. They were located
within a diagram of our home, so I knew the lost one was somewhere between the
car and the house. It was way too cold to go outside to look last night, so I
resigned myself to waiting until morning.
When my daughter came this morning, she looked in my car - and she found the
errant hearing aid in the cup-holder. It's too bad the hearing aid app doesn't have
a way to ping my brain.
