It is just an hour and a half surgery. I will get to go home the same day. Six to eight months later we have another surgery that will put the abutment onto the ti- tanium screw. A few weeks later, I will have the sound processor put on. Then, I will be able to hear so much better. I will be able to hear my friends so much better. I will hear things in a different way. I can't wait!!!! /s/Zach Rodriquez Zach Rodriquez Hello my name is Zach Rodriquez. I am here explain- ing to my 1 grade classroom about what is going to happen to me on Monday, May 10. I am so excited about it, that I want everyone else to be too. My class is so supportive and caring. I felt they needed to be a part of my exciting experience too. I am having the BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) implanted. For those of you who do not know me, I was born with only my left ear. My right ear did not de- velop. I have all the functioning parts under the skin but not the outer ear. I wear a hearing aid for my left ear to help with the softer sounds. How I heard about this device was through my ENT doctor. He suggested that I was a great candidate for the BAHA. The BAHA system works through a com- pletely different approach to bone conduction. Tradi- tional bone conductors work by exerting pressure against the skull. The BAHA system puts a small tita- nium implant into the skull behind the ear where it bonds with the living bone. An abutment is attached to the implant and a sound processor is clipped on. The sound processor can be worn or taken off at any time. SO if I wanted to go swimming or needed to take a bath I can do so without ruining the device. The surgical pro- cedure is minor. The sound quality is greatly improved compared to traditional bone conductors. The BAHA sound processor is comfortable and discreet. Just how I like it. Now I am just having the first part of the implant done on Monday. Which is the implant of the titanium Dear Sall3 Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you that Norwalk truly is "The Community That Cares". The residents proved it once again Saturda3 May 8, by do- nating 2,877 pounds of food for the local food bank! That is the largest donation we have ever received. Many people brought their donations to the Post Office so they wouldn't forget. We really appreciate all the great people in Norwalk who are willing tohelp out when asked. In these days of economic downturn and so many unem- ployed it was truly great to see so much outpouring of generosity. We collected a large variety of items to stock our lo- cal food pantry this year. It should be full for a few months. I would like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to donate, especially Scott's Foods for their extra large donations. Scott's even made a display and had a drop-off box at the store to make it easier to do- nate. We couldn't have done so much without them. All the postal employees who worked that day to help make it happen, they put in the extra effort. Thanks to Todd, Sharon and Wayne for helping to load the food, trans- port it to the church and unload it. Thanks again go to my husband and son Mitch for taking the time to come help weigh and load so we were not running real late.. This year I had a special helper, my nine year old grand daughter, Maddie Wahl, from Cherokee was here and spent the day with me to drive around and pick up food, bring it back to the Post Office and weigh it. She couldn't believe how much we got and wants to do something like it in her town. And thank you to the Martensdale and Cumming Post Offices for participating this year and bringing their donations to Norwalk. The ladies at New Life Lutheran had a lot to do sorting the food! Without the help and continued support of these people we could not have made it such a success. Again, I would like to thank the residents for their generosity in this once a year worthwhile event; it was very much appreciated. /s/Pat Wahl, President, NALC Branch 6265 !
