Ok! It really amazes me that the person you think of as indecisive and incapable of making any decisions on her own has just made a huge jump ahead in the world of technology.
I am referring to my sister, who is almost three years younger than me. All my life she has driven me crazy (and I’m sure vice versa :-)) but she has taken the plunge and gotten a cochlear implant. Yesterday was her activation day and she is doing really well. (See picture of her with her new cochlear implant)
She and I have always been different. She was always more confident about sharing her hearing loss whereas I always tried to hide it. She was always book smart and I always had more common sense. She is tall and thin and I am short and fat (ok, that has nothing to do with any of this but it is true :-). Currently she has an amazing career whereas I have an amazing family. She can’t make decisions by herself without involving anyone and everyone. I make them regardless of what anyone thinks. You know, together we might make up the perfect person…minus the disabilities.
Kudos to you my brave sister.
