My activation is finally imminent! My feelings shift rapidly between anticipation, reservation, nervousness and suppressed excitement. I have not heard a sound in my right ear for over 3 weeks now. I have noticed a shift in my thinking these past few weeks. I find myself observing my surroundings and questioning what things make noise. Some sounds I can recall from my youth, but most are left to my imagination.
The other in bed, I watched my ceiling fan spinning and tried to remember if it makes a sound.
When I see tree branches or leaves sway, I wonder what kind of sound they make.
When my 5 year old son gets really excited, he makes this crazy happy face, all teeth showing, eyes squinted and I wonder if he is squealing when he does it.
I wonder too, how bad my kid’s language is around the house… Hmm, they may not like having a mom who can hear..
I can’t wait to hear the trickling of water!
I am trying to keep my expectations realistic. One thing is for sure, no matter how bad things sound at first, it will be wonderful to finally have sound in that ear. Bring on the noise!!
