It is the day before.

Am I nervous?  Yes.

Am I scared?   A little.

Am I worried?   Kind of.

It is more of the psychological aspect more than anything.  For those that remember my first one, and if you read this blog from the very beginning, you will find out that I had a nervous breakdown, a panic attack just three days after I was activated.  (Read the blog “Three Days In”).   This time however, I am not living alone as I was then.  I have my wife here for support, so I am going to be okay.   That is why I took an extra day off to really take it all in.

I am going to have, for the first time in maybe 20-25 years, the ability to use both my ears at the same time.  Of course, there are a bunch of cool toys and gadgets that I get with this system, and i am very excited about that.  But I am looking more to having “fully functional” ears.    I have spent the last 8 years with only 180 degrees hearing (half the world) and now……….I am going to have 360 degrees hearing………..the WHOLE world.

The noisy world.

I think I wrote about that in one of my books.   (Bonus if you have the book, and you find that poem!)

Well………….one more day “left.”

The world will be noisy.  And alive.

Am I ready?
