Praise God, for He is so good!! The scoring system for the cat scan is on a 1-10 scale. Makinna scored a 9!! The only thing she lost a point for, was the outside malformation. They said that her situation was as perfect as it could be considering. They said that they have only had one surgery that was unsuccessful who had scored a 9. It will give her the highest level of possible hearing that he can provide. They said it will never be as high as her normal ear, but it would be as close as he was capable of getting it. We were so happy, yet not too surprised. I felt in my heart that it would be good news. I have always believed that she could hear at least sounds on that side. I would whisper in her ear, and she would seem to know I was saying something.
New news, the surgery date was put in wrong, so it is now November 5th instead of the 9th. That actually makes the stay shorter anyway.
Thank you all so much for the prayers about this test. Obviously prayer is powerful. We would have been thrilled with an acceptable score, but this exceeds all hopes and expectation.
