    New Earmolds And Hearing Aids

    Since my last post my hearing has continued to deteriorate. You might remember that my audiologist warned of this last year. Well in September I had my 6 monthly check up with her. I knew that my hearing had gotten worse as over the summer I'd been turning up the volume on my...
