First Outfit, First Toy, First Drawing, and First Hearing Aid

Parents oftentimes save their child’s firsts. Their first outfit, haircut, toy drawing, etc. My parents saved my first hearing aid.
I was sorting through some boxes yesterday and ran across this….
My first hearing aid!
I have gone through FM systems, 5 hearing aids, and now the CI. I don’t even want to know how many HA batteries I have gone through.

For those of you who are not familiar with the old fashioned hearing aids. This is how you wore them…strapped to you. It’s not the best picture but it was the only one I could find quickly on my computer that shows clearly how I wore it. I’m not sure where the earmolds are or if I even still have them.

Apparently people in stores would come up to my parents and ask them if I was listening to the radio. 🙂
Do any of you still have your old hearing aids? It sure brings back memories!
