So I am starting to think that my mom has some magical powers. I have been thinking and thinking, and waiting to see when I can get my surgery date scheduled for my CI. I thought I would have to wait for my appointment with my surgeon (On June 15th) to actually schedule the surgery. They told me when I saw the audiologist that it could be 2 weeks to 6 weeks after my appointment for the surgery. Well I had my CT scan today, which just so happens to be in the same building as my CI center. When I informed my amazing mom of this, she decided she wanted to go up and talk to them about the billing stuff for my eval, because she hadn’t seen a bill from them yet. So we went up, mom started talking to the lady at the front desk, one thing led to another, and I have a surgery date!!! Its under two months away… activation is just over 2 months from now. I am amazed!! I am happy that I could (or mommy could) get my surgery scheduled now… because apparently he is pretty booked!
Here is the schedule so far!
2:15 Pre-Op with Dr. Kelsall
3:00 Pre-Admission Testing
Surgery (aprox at 12:30) I have to be there at least an hour and a half before the surgery
Mommy said she will be here with me during this time!!! and for my recovery.
July 24th (just under 2 weeks from surgery)
1 PM – activation with Allison Biever (Audiologist)
4 PM – Post-Op with Dr. Kelsall
So it was a big day… and I think my mom has some sort of magical powers!!! The thing I need to be sure about is that they get me an interpreter for each of these appointments… because even just the little bit of lipreading today… in a medical setting… makes me want to scream…
anyways… here are two pictures of my mommy and I today!!
mommy wasn’t too happy about the next picture… it cut our heads off
