Mary Ellen's implant day

Today is Mary Ellen's implant surgery day!

I am so impressed by her willingness to take this leap after so many years of living well as a deaf person.

I'm also overwhelmed with memories of my own implant day and what I felt like.

I know it is going to be a lot tougher for Mary Ellen than it was for me. I was deaf for only a year, and had very powerful memories of what hearing sounded like. She is going to have a very different experience. She has a family and friends around her to support her, and that's the most important asset she needs - that, and intestinal fortitude, and she seems to have that in spades as well.

I know you join me in wishing that the surgery goes absolutely perfectly.

Thanks Ronnie - We're all crossing our fingers, saying our rosaries and generally thinking of my mom on this important day.

Back from TO? All's swell in the house of CIs here in DC. My ear's leaking a bit, but that's to be expected, they say. Thanks so much for your great support! you and the others have made all the difference!
