My Story
After a 15 month insurance battle and a whole lot of prayer, I had surgery on December 20th.  I was supposed to have bilateral implants but due to some complications, only received one.  Tomorrow is activation.  I struggled a bit with recovery but am doing so much better.  I am nervous about activation.  As there were complications with surgery, I am wondering if there will be some complications with activation.   Mostly though, I am excited.  A whole new journey begins :)
