Out of my three best friends, two came to see me shortly after my surgery. Gloria, who many of you know is my nanny, she is also my best friend. I was so happy to have her care for me and hold me while I was in discomfort after the procedure.
Jessica, my speech therapist at the center, is another one of my best friends. I was about to take a snooze and in walked Jessica! I was in so much pain so it was difficult to greet her with a smile. I look forward to seeing her next week, as I will be ready to go back to speech therapy classes.
My bandages were removed the morning after the procedure. I was such a good girl and didn't even fuss.
An hour later, we were discharged from the hospital. I was finally able to go home to see my other best friend, who happens to be my dog, Alan. He wasn't allowed to visit me at the hospital so I didn't see him until I got home. I was so happy to pet him and he attacked me with many kisses.
Many of you ask how I am doing? I have been sleeping better each night... and I am pretty much back to my regular schedule during the day. I have to take yucky antibiotics for the next week - but aside from that, I am just fine! I have a busy month coming up in February. My "new ears" will be turned on Thursday, February 9th. I am so excited and can't wait to hear my mommy and daddy's voices for the first time. My follow up appointment with Dr. Roland is the next day - he will take a look at my incisions and make sure everything is healing properly. So the count-down finally begins... 12 more days to go until my journey to hearing begins! Stay tuned....
