After researching Canadian suppliers with no luck, I finally just ordered a voice amplifier directly from ChatterVox. Another blogger is using it and recommends it. I can't wait to be able to carry on a conversation in a restaurant again!
On another positive note, I finally went to see a social worker at the cancer clinic yesterday. We hit it off right away and I felt that I got a lot from the hour I spent with her. I made another appointment for next week. This process isn't easy and I can use all the help I can get.
One of the challenges of having advanced cancer is that there aren't enough good-news stories. While it may be necessary to go to the 'dark side' at times, I want to create a blog that is about living in the moment and finding joy in the small things.
