CT Scan Results

Dr. Kang called yesterday with the results of Drew's CT scan. Drew's inner ear formation is in tact and there are no structural issues with his inner ear. This confirms his candidacy for his cochlear implants! While this is the news we were expecting, we are very happy that our son has two perfectly shaped cochlea's!

As with the course of this journey, things do not goes as we plan, or as we are told. Dr. Kang did not schedule a date for Drew's surgery yesterday. He confirmed that he will implant Drew in June, but would like to schedule the surgery after our CI Consult with the mapping audiologist, which is Wednesday and after our meeting with a speech pathologist, which is April 25th. So stay tuned, it will probably be another month before we have a confirmed surgery date.
