After a battery of MRIs and hearing tests, you find you have irreversible hearing loss. You're deaf. You've heard about cochlear implants, was it that old TV show, The Six Million Dollar Man? Wasn't that what Rush Limbaugh had done? Your hopes soar as you think of a bionic ear that will restore your hearing and bring you back into the "normal" world.
