My Second Cochlear Implant Surgery
1. My kids have been on vacation since last Monday, I love them, but thank God they are returning to school.
2. I'm going to Pisa tomorrow morning to support my first Mom. She contacted me three months ago with a question regarding the cochlear implant and her 18 month old beautiful baby girl is having the surgery tomorrow morning.
3. I'm freaking out.
I love that I have the opportunity to provide information and resources to parents going through what we have gone through with Jordan. I met with a mom of a newly diagnosed baby about three weeks ago and started crying with her as she broke down wondering whether her baby would "be okay."
Tomorrow, I'm going to live all of the pain and agony I went through while Jordan was in that operating room. This time, I'll be the one bringing the coffee and calming the nerves of another mom. I hope I don't have a panic attack.
It's times like these when I can almost understand why some doctors have no bedside manner.
I never want to become numb.
