It's a medical miracleand a story that will inspire you, touch you, and perhaps even change your own life (or the life of one you love). Arlene Romanoff began losing her hearing when she was just twenty and started a slow descent into deafness. No cause could be found; no known cure existed. She struggled to function, using hearing aids and reading lips. But, just as soon as she gained a coping skill or a new piece of equipment, her hearing would worsen again, leaving her back at the beginning. Finally, nothing at all worked: she had become profoundly deaf. Her salvation lay in the most cutting-edge technology: a surgically implanted cochlear implant, with computer chip and magnet. Once attached to an external device that stimulates the auditory nerve.hearing is possible once again. Here is the amazing diary of her experiences, shared with family, friends, and colleagues. It will let you knowprobably for the first timewhat life is like without sound.and how it feels to join the hearing world once again.
