Well, my hearing aid adventure is finally coming to an end. Right about now.
Longtime FOPs (Friends of Pow!) have followed the trials and tribulations of my hearing problem, and the somewhat unconventional ways with which I’ve tried to deal with it. While I dug the designer hearing aid solution, Sonomax’s Nick Laperle assured me I was an ideal candidate for more immediate and permanent fix—an operation.
So as you read this, I am undergoing the knife—albeit a very tiny one—as Dr. Jamie Rappaport is operating on my left ear. If things go well, I’ll be able to hear properly for the first time in close to 20 years.
And if they don’t…well, I could always make an artistic statement and pull a Van Gogh.
Seriously, my artistic statement will still be made, as the Frank Cipra designed-hearing aid I commissioned will be converted into Sonomax hearing protectors…which if I had, and I used, when I went to concerts as a kid, I wouldn’t be in this predicament in the first place.
