The Lost Hearing Aide, an elder care story

The Lost Hearing Aide

This afternoon Dad advised me that he had lost his left hearing aide.

He had taken it out of his ear and put it in his coat pocket…to use the phone.

As I asked about the coat,  he turned UP his right hearing aid which was buzzing quite loud.

I asked him to turn it down.

He did… The buzzing continued.

I asked him to turn it off.

He did.. The buzzing continued. 

 Noticing my excitement, he paid “close attention”.

” I STILL HEAR BUZZING ” I said, “It’s here….I CAN HEAR IT.

Duuuh?

‘ I STILL HEAR A BUZZZZ.” 

“THERE’S A HEARING AIDE AROUND HERE BUZZZZZING”

 “Maybe it’s in your hat….CHECK YOUR HAT.” 

  No hearing aid.

 “I STILL HEAR IT.  RIGHT HERE.”

He then checked his pants pockets. 

With absolute joy and appreciation he said “Look here. alright. Thank you”

 Hearing Aide Found.  Twas missing, not lost!
