Ha ha!

All right, stitches out. Woohoo! I don't have to go back to see Dr. W for another 3 weeks, which we managed to aline w/ the day I get my C.I. activated, so I'll be spending a lot of time there on the 26th, let me tell you. But it's better than going back and forth...back and forth...
I know I've said this before, but even after the initial activation on the 26th, I still will not have great hearing. In fact, I have no expectations. I'm guessing it will be better than it is now, which is, essentially, no hearing in my left ear. So anything is an improvement. It will take many months until it is really where we want it, and adjustments continue for up to one year post-surgery. So warning to all of you who know me--the Bionic Hearing is not Immediate. :)
In other news...working in War and Peace, which, I've decided, is actually just a bunch of stories woven together, and as such, it's not a bad read. Also reading The Grapes of Wrath which I am (shockingly) really enjoying. Also finished P&P and will start Mansfield Park sometime this weekend. Whew. Good thing we didn't do surgery on my eyes!

I love the Grapes of Wrath! I read it in high school for a book report...and, if I remember correctly, the movie's not half bad, either.

Good luck with your activation! I hope people have warned you that it sounds really terrible at first, it takes a few weeks to settle in (I had mine switched on last year)
