Post Surgery!

Hello from bed!!!

The surgery went very well. Glad it's over and behind me. I got home around 5:30ish last night. I got sick to my stomach a few times yesterday but feeling much better today and actually slept pretty decent last night.

If ya'll are interested as to what procedure I had done. Check out this link.

I got the sweetest texts and phone calls yesterday. And want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

I had the scripture Jeremiah 29:11 on my hand while in surgery. And that brought alot of comfort and peace.

I go back in 3-4 months when I am healed and get fitted for the device. I'm so excited because I will be able to hear so much better and a whole new world will open up for me.

Here's a few pictures from surgery day.





This is where they marked my ear to make sure they operated on the correct ear. Has the word "yes" and the date on my ear.


About to go back!


All done!!!


And this is pretty much what I look like today... I will be able to take the head piece off today. YAY!!! :)

Off to watch TV, read blogs, sleep, eat, and be lazy, haha!!!!! :)

Have a GREAT Saturday!!

Oh and I can sympathize with the head wrapping- I've had that twice! It is not pleasant, but at least you get it off soon.... :)

How cute are you post surgery! What a happy little camper you were! Hope your ears are opened to a whole new exciting world very soon!! Prayers for you!

Mrs. Dew said...

how cute are you?! i must be a bad bloggie buddy b/c i had NO idea you suffer from hearing loss! I do too and I am so scared to get a hearing aid! Mines only on the right side and so far my hearing on the left is still pretty good. We'll see! This surgery looks WAY better than a normal hearing aid, IMO. Glad your surgery went well though! I wish you a speedy recovery!

Kendra Loisel said...

Aw, so glad everything is ok.! (:

Hope the healing process treats you well.!

Kendra said...

Oh, AWESOME! I was trying to figure out what kind of surgery you were having. I had it down to three choices, this being one of them. That's totally great for you. Did you pick a cool looking aid for when you get hooked up? Gotta have style, even on hearing aids! And I'm glad you are healing and doing well.
