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.

spring is here...

Spring is here at last! The sun was out this morning so went to sit out for an hour or so and just had the sun on my face it was very warm and now i have rosy cheeks hehe
Im thinking of planting some giant sunflowers and tomatoes!
The occupational nurse came round this afternoon with a seat for the bath to help me get out or just use it as a stool for my feet as i have to keep my feet elevated. hehe
