The bandage is off and Fiona is ready for her big activation day tomorrow. While she still has a scar over her right ear (and will for some time), everything has healed quite nicely in the last 2 weeks.
We meet the audiologist at 9am tomorrow to begin programming her implant, with the “activation” (first introduction of sound) to occur an hour or two later. Eliza’s family is skipping out on work tomorrow morning to come show their support, and of course help with the video recording. Did I mention they were awesome?
So we’re all very curious what her first reaction will be…i’ll post the video as soon as I can tomorrow.
Which brings me to the poll results!
While frightful crying (my vote) put up a valiant effort, cheerful laughing was clearly the crowd favorite with 65% of the vote. You guys are a bunch of hopeless saps!
Still, I hope I’m wrong (and you all are right) and we have the next big youtube sensation on our hands! 😉
Here are the full results.
More tomorrow, stay tuned!
