Monday 26/08/91 – Hughan’s Hearing Aid Gets Wet

Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress. 

Hughan dropped his hearing aid in the bath water by mistake. He realised it was bath time and went to remove his hearing aid (something he seldom does). The mould stayed behind in his ear, as he went to remove it he dropped the aid to remove the mould and the water was right there. I dried the hearing aid with my hair dryer. It seemed ok!

After lunch we left for Marondera to stay with friends. They own a winery and we had a relaxing time.

They have peacocks and the one opened its tail out several times.

(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him.
