A day of tests

Today’s visit at the Mayo went very well. The extensive vertigo testing showed that my balance fits the surgery perfectly! Basically my left (deaf) ear performed very well for balance but my right ear (to be implanted) wasn’t as good. This is a positive because the surgery can cause balance issues. With my left ear (non implanted ear) being the better of the two, it provides a stronger balance system in case the surgery upsets the balance in my right ear. Here is a snapshot of the test apparatus:

If  you want – read up on how our balance system works.  It is amazing!  What an awesome Creator we have!
