One Woman's Journey Through Rehabilitation…



Chapter 13: Angiogram Results!

We’re back with the result’s of Cheryl’s angiogram. Don’t worry, I won’t bury the lead… she’s doing great!

We also talk about some of the major gains Cheryl has been making in the past month or so. Gains she shouldn’t be making after 2 years out. Cheryl has a special message for anyone going through the same thing and might be worried about what’s going to happen to them. Don’t worry, I won’t bury that one either…

“Don’t give up, it WILL come back!”


Chapter 11: Post Holiday Wrap up and Checking in with Cheryl…

Hey everyone! We’re back. We took a little bit of a holiday hiatus in order to… well… I’ll let Cheryl tell you why when you listen to the show. Trust me, you don’t have to wait very long for her to get into it. She barely let me hit record before she blurted it out.

After we talk about why we were away, we have discussion about where she’s at now and what she wants for the future.



Chapter 10: Post-Hearing Test Discussion w/ Special Guest

This week, Ally sits down and we chat about all of the excitement that’s been going on. Specifically about opur trip to the UC Irvine HESP Lab. Also, we have a chat about everyone’s excitement for the Holiday’s especially seeing how Cheryl was pretty out of it last year.


Chapter 9: Back From Break…

Hey everyone! We’re back after a short hiatus. Cheryl hasn’t been feeling very good and it definitely affected her speech. She’s much better now and still a pistol. In this chapter, we pretty much catch everyone up on her experiences while we were away. Handling multiple people at a party, going to the doctor for tests, her hearing and the idea of going back to speech therapy.


Chapter 8: Another Ear Doctor and Cheryl Passes out…

This week we chat about the LOOOOONG journey we’ve taken with ear doctors, only to have that journey extended even more. We also talk about Cheryl collapsing and spending the night in the E.R. You’ll hear sound logic from Cheryl as she explains why that was a total waste of time. (Spoiler Alert: She’s not wrong!)
