The trip to Portland and back for the 15 minute chat with the surgeon was as usual LONG. lol we left at 6 am and arrived home about 6 pm Saturday evening, then had to go round up the dogs and kid so lots of driving. feel ready to hit the hay already.
the gist of it at the moment is the surgeon agrees with the audiologist that the surgery will be a benefit for me, the risk for having the second implant is in some adults inserting a second one makes them dizzy... (well the Wii fit already asks me if i trip when i walk...) So, the benefits to me seem to out weigh that one risk so tomorrow i will contact the lady who is the keeper of the surgeon's schedule and pick a day from his openings... ( he thinks he has some two, three and four weeks away) So i will know more in a day or two i guess. The thing of it is even though its winter and the roads can go to yuck at any time I want to just get it over with and be on the re-learning sounds on the other side part of the equation and not the anticipating the surgery and recovery from that part so will probably pick the soon as possible date and get it over with...
