HealedIt was last June 23.  I am sorry to update a post little late.

I went to the doctor today.  The nurse pulled the staples out from behind my ear.   It only hurt a little.  My skin felt stretched and back to normal, flat.   It felt like a bee sting.   My doctor checked my incision and made sure it was not infected.   He touched the implant inside my head to if it hurts or not.  I felt nothing except my ear is still sore in a circle around my ear.  He said everything is fine and is normal.  He asked me if I can speak a little?  I said yeah.   I told him I can’t wait to hear my voice that I have never heard before.   He saw that I am not afraid of activation and am really excited.   He smiled.    I stayed there for 30 minutes.
I went to get my glasses repaired.  My glasses were broke when I took the arm off because of my surgery.  The lady repaired and put a new nut and bolt in.  It’s hurts behind my ear, because of the cut.   I tried to figure it out to solve the problem.   I am thinking about putting foam on to make it more comfortable.  I am so happy.  I will be able to take a showers again!

Bandage off

StitchesWhen I got up this morning.   I went to bathroom and looked in the mirror, my head was swollen and my eye was all puffy.   I woke my husband up to call the doctor about bandage off.    My husband got confirmation that he could cut it off and  grabbed the scissors to cut the gauze off.    He took it off really gently taking really small cuts.  As I took the bandage off I took a deep breath.  I am feeling much better now that I got the bandage off. I saw behind my  ear that I have 6 staples.   I can feel the implant under my skin.  It makes me smile.  I wonder why my eye is puffy.    I really want to wash my hair but I can’t because of the incision.   Bummer!   I took a shower with dry towel wrap around my head.   I am about to go over to my mom’s house.   So she can take care of me when my husband is at work.   I don’t want to be alone at home with my dog.   I don’t want go outside in public to see my eye puffy and staples behind my ear.    I am able to sleep with my pillow normally without the bandage on. I am glad the doctors cut behind my ear instead of shave hair like they did previously.  They really didn’t shave that much hair.  Whew! Not that bad!   Here is the picture.
