Blind Wife Wednesday: iPhone, You Phone, No Phone

Blind Wife Wednesday

Over the weekend, for whatever reason, my phone’s speaker decides to die.  Keeping in mind that my hearing is the sense I depend the most on, you can probably imagine how upsetting this is.  On the bright side, my speakerphone worked and I could use traditional or Bluetooth headphones, not exactly perfect, but the last 22 years of my life has been about adaptation so I can deal.

And deal I did, until Monday morning when my husband (who works for a wireless company) took my phone to work with him to get it fixed.  As he is running late, I freak out about my texts and calls.  Now, it would be bad enough to miss my MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) notifications or texts from my best friends, or my mom, which break up the monotony and lift my mood.  I could also miss important calls or text from clients!!!  I run a business from my cell phone.

Thankfully, my husband is a genius and knows exactly what to do.  He switched our SIM cards!  Not only did this help me to feel less stress over the loss of my phone for the day, but it also helped me stay in line with HIPPA, as my business is a mental health counseling practice.

Then my AMAZING husband thought about it and went the extra step and made sure that I could zoom in with his phone.  Things husbands of blind wives must think about, sigh.  I appreciate this SO much because it took him only seconds.  It would have taken me at least 5 minutes and I would have had to juggle the baby at the same time!  I love you, my wonderful husband.
