Its Friday, the morning after my ear surgery and things are looking great.
In short, I had major ear surgery yesterday to repair a completely destroyed right ear drum, insert an artifical hearing bone to replace the deteriorated one, and removal of any scar tissue growing from my prior ear injury.
The surgery was very successful, in fact, the doctor said it wasn't as bad as he thought when he got in there. He believes that my hearing will be restored, almost 100%. Unfortunately, they weren't able to go in through my ear canal, so they had to make an incision behind my right ear and shave part of the bone away. Sorry if that was TMI. The best part of all, they didn't have to shave any of my hair! I mean, what's a mom of two without pony tails?
Thank you for your prayers! Vicadin and morphine are wonderful drugs for pain and sleep. Too bad they don't let you take the morphine with you! Matt and I stayed in Detroit at a hotel to recover and are enjoying a nice hot breakfast before getting ready to head home. Please lift Matt and the girls up in prayer too. They have a long, patient weekend ahead of them as mommy does her best to recover. You know, when they mess with your inner ear, you have all those equilibrium problems. So, besides being dizzy, I'm a little nauseated too.
Hopefully good news to follow in the next few days.
