On Wednesday 5th November 2008, Nottingham Cochlear Implant Programme texted my mum and they wanted mum to contact them straight away. So mum did that and I was upstairs watching TV (The Jeremy Kyle Show) as usual. And all of a sudden, my Nan, brother Jack and my mum BARGED in my room jumping and I thought 'What the hell is going on', then mum came up to me and gave me this piece of paper and I read it and it says 'OPERATION DATE 18TH NOVEMBER', from them on I sobbed. I texted my mates and the rest of the family and most of all the 1st person I told was my best friend Katie-Louise. She said to me 'Told you didn't I,that you would hear for xmas.' So I backed down and admitted that she was right.
My drinking is limited and I only have 6 cans max (when I feel like it). I only have 3 or 4 cans with my dad. So now I'm scared on having a scar coz I NEVER EVER in my life had 1 before and also I'm scared on being activated.
I will keep you updated
