We are still in the OR holding room. Charlie is sleeping peacefully due to his 12:00 dose of clonadine.

In the meantime our anesthesiologist said his nephew had a similar history with meningitis and recently recieved a cochlear implant and writes about his experience. His blog is http://blogs.chron.com/nowhearthis/
We haven't read much of it yet but if you are bored it might make the time go faster until we are taken back for surgery.
