On Wednesday August 14, one month from today, I'm scheduled to have my left ear implanted. It's exciting and nerve-wracking. I'm excited because my implanted right ear continues to improve and nervous because the recovery after my first surgery was so rough.
Later on this fall, I should be able to upgrade to a better processor, the Nucleus 6. Among other things, it should have improved sound processing and wireless connectivity to accessories like microphones and, I hope, cell phones. Once again, I consider myself so lucky that the technology continues to improve at a rapid rate and that I'm in a position to take advantage of it all.
