I just had one of the coolest experiences. I was the guest lecturer for my son's 3rd grade class. They were learning about hearing and sound. Their favorite topics were the hair cells producing electricity, some of the weird things I have pulled out of peoples ears (on the topic of don't put stuff in your ears) and can a 100 year old hear a mosquito sneeze. I had to then explain that yes I have had 100 year old patients with excellent hearing, and that hearing a mosquito sneeze was just an expression that meant they had really good hearing. They really wanted to hear a mosquito sneeze and were a little disappointed that mosquito's don't really sneeze. It was was really fun.

We did some more volunteer hearing screenings for Head Start yesterday. I found out one of the kids I screened at another location last time is getting hearing aids. We found one that had fallen through the cracks. We caught the loss early enough that speech and language development should not be affected. Kudo's to the Head Start program, the parents who followed through, and my old employer Regional Hearing & Balance who I recommended for their infant pediatric program in getting this kid some help.

I came across a great article in Machine Design on hearing aid technology that might be of interest to engineers, computer geeks and fellow nerds.

I need to brag on my Coordinator of Awesomeness. We had a patients wife call, and tell us that they were on the way to the Dr. and that she wasn't sure if she could get him out of the car twice, but they wanted him to hear what the Dr. was going to say. Natalie quickly responded, "That is OK, I will just have Dr. Parsons do what he needs to out in the car with you guys." We made it happen and the pt. was hearing much better when he left. Good Call Natalie, way to Coordinate Awesomeness.

I got to volunteer 7.5 hours at head start today and was able to screen the hearing of over 60 kids. Favorite answer to question: "So what are you good at?" Kid "Flying spaceships, I'm really good at it."
