Hubby has had his surgery

Several months ago I posted that the surgery for my husbands cochlear implant had been approved. Well today he had his surgery and seems to have come thru it just fine. The implant has 22 electrodes and they could only place 16 in my husbands ear. This means he won't have perfect hearing but it will be better than he's had.....which is nothing. Now we have to wait 2 to 4 weeks before they turn it on and program it to see exactly how much it will help him.
Just a thank you from all the well wishes I received about this surgery. I just hope it helps improve his life.
As always, Barbara
