Eh, say what?

About 12, 13 years ago, I had surgery on my right ear to remove something called a cholesteatoma (sort of like a tumor, but dead tissue instead of living tissue.) Unfortunately, it destroyed the bones in my middle ear and pretty much left me deaf on that side. My friends get used to me scurrying to their right side like a cockroach so I can hear what they're saying.

Next Friday, I'll be in surgery. The surgeon is going to install one or two prosthetics (depending upon how severe the damage is) in my ear to replace those bones. For the first time in over a decade, I'll be able to hear out of that ear. For some reason, this makes me a bit nervous. I'm so used to be hard of hearing that I'm not sure what it will be like to have my hearing back.
