“I was already eager for the hospital stay to end. No more visiting nurses asking me soft-spoken questions that the ringing noise (in my ears) wouldn’t let me hear.” -Chapter One, Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom
One year ago, I published Confessions of a Lip Reading Mom. The book shares the six years of my life immediately after being diagnosed with progressive hearing loss in 2001. I was a new mom with a persistent ringing sound in the ears that kept me awake long after my newborn son fell asleep. Would I hear him wake? How could I keep him safe if I couldn’t hear his whisper-soft breathing?
Writing the book caused me to relive the most painful and inspiring years I’ve experienced… The birth of my children. The continued loss of hearing. My baby’s first words. Not being able to hear those words. Depression. Blessed help. A family member’s unexpected death. Grace.
