Would you believe?

On New Year's Eve, one of Lucas's processors just stopped working. I was wondering why he kept trying to adjust it, and then I noticed that the light had stopped blinking. I tried to trouble shoot in various ways, but I had no success getting it to turn on again. Luckily, he has a back-up processor, so it wasn't really that big of a deal.

So, I called Cochlear today, since today is the first business day since it stopped working. Last time I called (over the summer), they found his name in a jiffy. Tonight the rep kept asking me further questions, like which implant center he uses. She then explained that there is someone else with the same name in our state! Who would have imagined! I mean, there are only 188,000 cochlear implants in the world. But someone very close to home shares the same first and last name as Lucas AND also has a Cochlear brand cochlear implant. Somehow I think that's pretty unbelievable.

I guess I didn't do a good enough job of giving him a less common name... hehehe! Wouldn't it be fun for Lucas to meet this person someday?

How crazy! That would be pretty cool for the two to meet up one day! Too bad Cochlear couldn't send the other Lucas your info! They may be closer than expected!
