Janis ~ I snuck a few more photos

Janis, as I've mentioned before, is about as close to stone deaf as it's possible to get. She communicates in sign language with her deaf friends, reads lips, and hears a little bit with the help of a hearing aid. Her phone has some sort of amplification device, but talking to her on the phone can be touch and go. I might have to say the same thing several times, perhaps choosing different words, until she understands what I'm saying. It's a lot easier talking with her in person, although strangers probably wonder why she has such a happy look on her face when I seem to be screaming at her and waving my hands around.
