The upshot of my hearing aid tragedy of about ten days ago is that it can be fixed – sort of.
As you know, I trod upon it and smashed the shell to smithereens. However, we gathered said smithereens and sent them off for a post mortem. Apparently, the electronics still function. The company still has the specs for the ear mould and will put Humpty back together again for just a little over three hundred dollars. I am rather relieved.
I'm not sure when I'll receive the refurbished piece, but I will be happy when I do.
Yes, it could have been worse — much worse.
