On Monday July 31, I had a cochlear implant in my right ear. Dr. Wilkerson says my surgery went well, and so far I have no pain or ringing in either ear.

Immediately after surgery, before I was conscious of anything in my surroundings, I clearly remember being in a contest in which I had to get five points in order to come back to reality. The four points I had gotten were all overridden by my opponent, so I had nothing. At that moment the Spirit of the Lord intervened and gave me a point in a position that freed up my other four points. I instantly became 100% aware of all my surroundings and saw the face of a nurse leaning over me with Rachael on her name tag. She asked, “How are you?” I replied, “The Spirit of the Lord enabled me.” Nancy and Brendan were there and both heard me say this three times. Their smiling faces were wonderfully beautiful to me.

Thank you for your ongoing prayers for recovery. I am scheduled on August 17 to have the cochlear implant turned on. Please pray that my mind will adjust well to this new way of hearing and that I will with practice be able to understand speech far better than I can now.

    Praise God for your work, in helping half the Body of Christ see that she can preach, as well as the men.

    How did turning on your cochlear implant go?

    Thank you for your encouragement and concern. I am adjusting very well to the cochlear implant in my right ear (implanted July 31) and the coordinated new hearing aid in my left ear. Prior to the implant I was understanding occasional words and phrases from my pastor’s sermons. Now I am understanding nearly 100% of what he and other worship leaders say. And on Zoom sessions I understand most of what other participants say, even people for whom English is not their native language and soft-spoken people. The audiologist I saw on December 12 said that my isolated word comprehension has jumped from 0% at the time of the implant to 28% on the first visit, to 52% on the second visit, to 80% on Dec. 12. My sentence comprehension with background noise interference jumped from 70% in the previous visit to 92%. Dr. Strader checked to be sure my hearing aid was turned off (it was) because she said they do not expect cochlear implant recipients to be able to comprehend more than 80% of sentences with background noise interference. So I am praising the Lord!
