It's almost time to get the cochlear implant! Wow, only a month away. Really? And this coming Friday I'll be in Denver. Discussing the surgery and such with the surgeon, getting some questions answered. And I'll also be informing the center of which implant device I want to get (Advanced Bionics). The audiologist said she would have demos on hand so I can look at them and get a feel for the devices. I'm actually pretty excited for Friday! Then I'll be back in Denver a month from now for pre-op and pre-admissions, then surgery on the 21st. Just wow. It's finally happening! I've been researching cochlear implants for about 10 years, and trying to get one for so long. Just hard to believe it's all becoming a reality.
