As some of you might remember, we went to visit our Audiologist to have Delaney's CI mapped very recently. Interestingly enough, the Audiologist broke one of the prongs off her implant while trying to fit it onto the computer equipment. She mentioned that it looked corroded and just snapped off (which I'm sure it may have, since it spent a night outside thanks to my ultra-responsible daughter), however, it was working fine for us, and didn't appear to be loose, but here's the kicker: We just found out that the warranty had expired four days prior to our appointment. OUCH. I *knew* we should have looked into some kind of extended warranty, although I will say, the warranty offered by Advanced Bionics does not cover accidental damage- only manufacturer's defect. Three years went by WAY to quickly, and we didn't deal with this with Emily because she received two Harmony processors when she got her second implant.
I'll keep you all posted on how quickly (and how costly) a processor repair is :)
