questions ????

These are questions I've answered tonight about Monday's bilateral cochlear implant surgery....

Am I gonna bleed? (um, some)

How long will I be asleep...30 min or 2 hrs? (until they finish, we want them to be really careful)

Why haven't they tried to put one in that ear before? (they have, you just don't remember)

What does the knife look like, does it look like Daddy's camo knife? (no, it's a silver doctor's knife)

He's again named many things he wants to hear, and Brook's voice has moved to the top of the list!! He still didn't mention me but hey, he reads me so well, I'm his interpreter at times, he doesn't HAVE to hear me! I likely won't post again until after the surgery is complete. But I'll update asap. I'll keep my facebook updated throughout the day though!

Thanks Naomi...and about FaceBook, you have to have a facebook account set up and be on my friend list, so if you're already on facebook, you can send me a friend request (Val Blakely). I will update the blog late Monday or Tues. as soon as I can.

Surgery is so much harder when they're old enough to be anxious about it! I'm praying everything goes smoothly (and quickly)!And for a very fast recovery!
