Activation Day is almost Here!

Its Saturday night everyone keeps asking me " ARE YOU EXCITED" " WHEN'S ACTIVATION." I seriously feel like i been saying the answer for years yet its only 4 weeks. I cannot believe only 2 more days till ACTIVATION DAY on TUESDAY MARCH 8TH, 2011!!!!! Thank you all for the amazing support it really means alot to me. It hasn't hit me yet I am excited but the actual day hasn't come and that's when I'm going to get nervous! Im leaving about 11 appointment is 2pm. Its a 2 hour appointment so its going to be a long day for me! My incision is look really good its pink and the top hasn't peeled off yet which is driving me nuts because I have OCD issues lol. It has healed very nicely and you can barely see it. The tinnitus is AWFUL. Surgeon is on vacation so I dont have anymore XANEX and apparently the on call Dr. doesnt want to call me back altho I called 4 x I gave up so Im suffering with barely any sleep. My surgeon is awesome! I lucked out I am glad I picked him after all! A big thanks to one of my HLAA meetings he came to one of them and spoke about Implants about 3 years ago. This was way before I even went deaf in this ear but I remembered him from the meeting!

I hope you are all doing well. All of your journeys I have been reading daily and Its a big inspiration to me and I seriously never in my life did I learn so much in such a short amount of time. Cochlear Community is just amazing and Im glad that there is a support group out there!

PS-- I CANT WAIT TO HEAR! Ahhhh! Its so exciting. All the " WHATS IF'S" are in my head. I must say though.. I do LOVE the option that I can be IN SILENCE WHEN I WANT TO :) Sometimes I do need it so its nice to have BOTH WORLDS.

Eventually I would love love love to become a Cochlear Volunteer! That is one of my goals for the future once everything falls into place.

Have a great weekend!

I promise I will be back March 8th, 2011 the day of ACTIVATION! I will posting pictures as well.
