I had to take my laptop to Mac Resource Store, because I accidentally got droplets of glue from a spray can on the keyboard. When I picked up my laptop, I was still wearing my bandages from the surgery.
The employee that helped me checkout is named Eric and he asked about the bandages. That’s how we got to talking about ear surgeries. Turns out, Eric also has hearing loss and he got a BAHA implant a few years ago. We talked a little bit about the surgery and other surgeries. We both had mastoidectomies done and we have even seen some of the same doctors.
I had a great time talking with Eric, because I don’t know anyone who has undergone similar surgeries as me. When I get the outer processor for the BAHA, I am going to visit Eric again, so we can compare thoughts on the device.
It may sound funny, but I am kind of glad I messed up my keyboard. I got to meet a great person that I can relate to in a way I have never done before.
