I forgot to mention, but Ricki broke her hearing aid the other day, possibly on purpose. (It was squeaking in her ear, and before the aid could deal with it, Ricki did, in a rather unrestrained manner. But at least it was a small add-on type of plastic part and not expensive. However, we have to wait a few days until the replacement part arrives.
I was concerned about the delay, it making Ricki’s day in school perhaps less beneficial. However, as a result of not having the aid, she suddenly realized that it was hard for her to hear her favorite DVD. I don’t think she will break the aid again… For that alone, the delay was worth it. You’ve heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Here a lack of sound could yield two thousand bucks. (I just wish they would hurry up. The loud volume she is turning the DVD up to is hurting MY ears.)
