oe Milne who suffers from Ushers syndrome, was deaf from birth. She had bilateral cochlea implants fitted which allow her to hear for the first ever, this is the moment they are switched on!

Then she heard Obama speak, and immediately demanded to have the implants removed.
LOL ...I feel her pain.
and was confused by it at first.."Turned on" sort of t hrew me..
You going to the games this weekend?..nosebleed seats?
You STOLE MY THUNDER!I was going to say if Obongo “Speaking”was the first thing she”Heard”,she should unplug the cochlear and consider herself FORTUNATE!!!!!!!!
What an ambiguously-worded headline.
My first thought was "what could she hear through them?"
Will she start receiving death threats from those that think the deaf should use sign language and lip reading only. There used to be protest against restoring hearing, is that still the case?
Her fake boobs are plugged into her ears? Have I got that right? No wonder she can’t hear.
“oh bloody ‘ell...does everyone sound like a limey now?”
She was saying that the audiologist had a very high-pitched voice, and the audiologist kept assuring her that his perception would go away in awhile—but the audiologist does have an extremely high and irritating voice. That’s not going away anytime soon.
I’d love to see how they introduce her to music. Poor lady. What a great joy for her.
