As many of you know, I had surgery to replace the bones in my ears 20 years ago. Lately I have been having problems understanding speech especially in church and last week in Montreal. It isn't a matter of volume. I can "hear" noise. I'm having trouble discriminating sounds. Background noises are intruding more than they used to. Hearing aid users know exactly what I'm talking about.
Well, I'm thrilled to get an appointment at Eye & Ear in Pittsburgh for 22 July. I expected to have to wait until sometime in the fall. I won't mind having hearing aids if that will help. I hate the embarrassment of having to ask a person to repeat. I don't understand people who, for cosmetic reasons, refuse to wear a hearing aid. Trying to communicate with them is frustrating for others. I'm sure several folks have felt that way about me lately. I hope there is a solution which will last another 20 years at least!
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
