Surgery Date!!!!

Okay, some of you have been anxiously waiting for my CI (cochlear implant) surgery date.

I need it like I need another hole in my head.

Wait. I AM getting another hole in my head when they drill a hole through my skull to insert the electrodes.

Soon I will be joining the ranks of other CI users (a.k.a cyborgs or bionic women).

Okay, hang on to your hats and stay on the edge of your seats.

Envelope please....

Oops. Dropped it...

Surgery date is

July 2....3!! JULY 23. (I was going to put down July 22 + 1, hee).

I guess the hospital only wanted to schedule it on Wednesdays. I was given a choice of August 6 or July 23. I just want it over with.

Yes, I am a little nervous and probably will be even more nervous as each day gets closer to the surgery date. (No, I don't want to think about it.)

Talk to you later. OXOX

SO COOL!! I screamed and clapped when I read your news! :) (You kept me in suspense though!!)

It's not the exact same day but it's close enough to practically be...I still consider us to be CI surgery buddies. :D Yay, Shari -- I'm so happy you finally got a date set!

That's great news, Shari!

That's a great way of thinking about it...that you're becoming a BIONIC WOMAN!

I just prayed that everything would go well for you with the surgery, and that you wouldn't have any anxiety about it, and no complications of any kind.

Thanks, everyone. All I can hope for is a safe and successful surgery. I don't want to think about the recovery part. Just the outcome. :)
