Cochlear Implant Surgery - GRAPHIC picture WARNING

Hey friends --- this post contains graphic inner ear pictures .... if that kind of stuff wigs you out, you better skip this blog post :)

Seth went for surgery on 7/9
The surgery was a success and recovery has been awesome.
He will be activated in another week.  We will have a several hour appointment where they turn the device on and then map the sound.  This site has a much more elloquent explination of mapping than I could offer.  If you are interested in the technical stuff, read this
