The Little Things

Today, I saw a patient of who had trouble hearing her husband for the last few weeks. I was able to remove wax that had clogged her ears and get her hearing devices up and running again.

Towards the end of the appointment, she sat quietly for a few minutes, and then asked “Are those birds I’m hearing outside your window?”

“Yes,” I replied.

As an audiologist, I understood why she was missing these sounds. Bird songs are typically high frequency sounds and outside her hearing range, as she has had a long-standing high frequency hearing loss in both of her ears.

She smiled and said, “It’s the first time I’m hearing them in weeks. What beautiful songs they sing.”

We both sat and listened for a bit, smiling and enjoying the moment.

It’s the little things.

Can you hear the sounds of the birds chirping in this video?
