I’m so impress this video from YouTube. My CI friend sent me of this video from Facebook inbox. So, I can show to my hearing family and friends to proof it. My second cousin’s son is deaf with bilateral cochlear implants and don’t know sign language. His ENT doctor didn’t allowed him to learn sign language real early when he was baby. His mom refused to learn sign language. That is sad! She and her parent thought cochlear implant make me hearing person. She told to hearing girl, “Jessica used to be deaf and she is hearing with CI.” No, I am still deaf! When I get my cochlear implant off and still deaf! The CI make me hard of hearing but I am still deaf! CI is not make me ban the ASL. I still love ASL and hear with CI! I want to show you this video. You can see children with bilateral cochlear implants use ASL.

My Surgery Day

Finally, My implant arrived at the hospital this morning.
Today my surgery is on my mom’s birthday. It’s special gift to her for me to hear. My mom always wanted me to hear. I arrived at the hospital at 8:30. I was ready for surgery. My surgery time was at 10:30.
After I woke up from recovery. I was a little dizzy. My head was wrapped with a gauze bandage wrap that made my forehead look a little swollen. For dinner I ate Chicken Stir Fry, Vanilla wafers and cherry cheesecake. It is great I don’t feel sick or nausea at all. I can feel where they cut and drilled into bone. I taste metal and it is numb when I eat. My pain is now a 7 or an 8 but it is better than when I woke up.
I was disappointed with the hospital for not having Closed-Captioned TV in my room. I can’t believe they don’t have CC available. I am feeling quite bored without TV and my laptop. I miss my laptop because my unit doesn’t have wi-fi.
My husband and I walked around the hallways for exercise. And low and behold we found wi-fi in the rooms in the new wing (found that out from Chris and our Blackberries’ wi-fi). We came back to my unit and picked up my laptop bag and my hospital water cup and high tailed it to the a waiting room with wi-fi. Oh the woes of being a geek, I can never live with having a connection. I want to blog how I am feeling today. Just be patient while everything loads for the next day. I promise everything will go up tomorrow.
