This is a little bit of what getting a cochlear implant looks like.
Morgan was admitted at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Chalfont outpatient center at 6 am on July 13. Due to unexpected procedures that came up for Dr. Germiller that morning he didn't start Morgan's surgery till almost 9 am. We got periodic updates from the nurse, but the waiting seemed like forever. We got to go back and see her around 1:30 pm. She did amazingly well with the surgery. She was very sleeply for the remainder of the day.

The California Ear Institute shows and an outstanding explanation of the implantation process! click the arrows to see the whole process!
