I'm off to the hospital first thing tomorrow morning. If all goes well, I'll be out and blogging come Saturday evening. It will be another month before we find out if the implant will be effective.
If anyone is wondering what a cochlear implant is, this website appears reasonably reliable.
Thank you for your thoughts and prays. Hopefully I'll be back on Saturday.
