Welcome To My Blog...

This blog follows my journey of 2 different cochlear implants and my condition: Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions I have started this blog 15 yrs too late but ill try my best to fit it all in! I have packed a lot of medical jargon into my life since I was 8.

There has been happiness and tears but I've come through it all with my family and my friends.I'm profoundly deaf as a result of a condition called Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions or mitochondrial disease RRM2B as my professor Sir Dough Turnbull calls it! I have had since birth but I didn't find out this til I was 19. I have had 2 cochlear implants (at the age of 8 and then i lost the 1st cochlear implant in my right ear after 7 years due to a bad, accruing ear infection (which I couldnt fight off because of my mitochondrial condition) at the age of 15 and had a 2nd one implanted in my left ear that same year which I have now.

Happy new year...

Happy 2011 to you all in the blog world.
I dont have many resolutions for this year but just hope it will be a good and healthy year!
I started off new years with a bloody cold but am feeling a bit better!
The eye ops are officially over (i hope!) just have to get used to them!! The left eye is the worst. The rght eye has recovered well although my left is "seeing" a bit funny with blurryness or double vision but then again it was a complicated eye to work on my doc said so we will see what the new year brings
