There's still some packing in the new canal that will be removed in 2 more weeks, but as near as we can tell, the surgery was quite successful. Without his hearing aid, he could hear Keddrick and I whispering to him. In fact, he can hear me softly say his name from the dining room when he's in the living room. Woo hoo!
He's now wearing his hearing aid only on the left side. With an ear canal on the right and his hearing aid on the left, he has some directional hearing, too. Pretty dang cool.
He'll have an "official" hearing test in another two weeks and we'll post the results here.
