Thanks for asking! Doing great right now, things did work out fine as my insurance covered the entire expense of both aids. A tialthalon huh? No, I dont think that is crazy, you go girl! Good Luck! Wish I had the dispositon myself....but I am just not capable of doing the necessary training. (time or self discipline)

Jayna, I will be at the Austin Fit meeting this weekend and coaching this year. I'd love to meet you. I'll be coaching the 9:30 half marathon pace group. This will be my first year coaching so pretty excited.

Jayna -
THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!! I was figuring it probably wasnt right for me, however, I have a side of me that was just nagging at me....."what if this thing could do the trick for only $500? You'd be stupid to not even try!" You've put my mind at ease, and I'm sure my audiologist, Shelly at VA ENT will concurr! Once againj, THANKS! If I can ever return the favor in some way, just let me know!

Hello, Jaynadems....I have a question for you, as my audiologist is on vacation, and i am having an hearing aid 'built' for me in her absence. The hearing aid is rather expensive, and insurance will only cover a fraction, and last sunday in the Parade section there was an ad for a hearing "device" called the Neutronic ear. It is sold from the website neutronicear.com, and the thing that really caught my attention was it is a FRACTION of the price of a hearing aid! I wanted to speak with my audiologist, but, like I said, she is out of town until the day I am supposed to see her for my "fitting".....so I thought I would run thes by you, no worries, I wont make any decisions
