Still not getting good sleep. I need to get a pain med with a sleep aid in it or maybe continue the Percocet during the night. Overall I feel fine – just not sleeping that well. The family is doing very well at communicating with me. Please pray for my wife who has to be my personal interpreter for every interaction. The kids know some sign and I can lip-read some…improvements in those areas will come with time.
The silence is 100% but I do have some increased tinnitus in my ear along with some occasional new sounds (like rushing water, or wind). These are to be expected because of the surgery and may subside over time. My left ear (95% deaf since age 10) is now my better hearing ear. I can hear Anna’s squeals through it
