Surgery #2 is scheduled!

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.
