The boys made it home around 10 pm last night. Evan did not appear to be in any discomfort, and was wired (I guess we know the answer to the question "Does 4 hours of general anesthetic equal a nap?"). He wanted to walk the loop around the kitchen with Jeremy, and didn't go to sleep until 3 am this morning!
The urology surgery was uneventful, and he woke up from anesthesia sounding pretty junky (normal for him), but otherwise fine. I understand he was combative during the pre-op, so much so that he was given some sedative. He immediately turned into "noodle boy" and they were even able to do the CT and MRI with just the sedative.
The hearing test results were interesting. There was no response aided or unaided on the right side (the side with his bendy ear). Aided on the left side, the results showed a moderate hearing loss. The cochlea appears to be functioning better than was thought--it's the middle ear that isn't working properly. This is interesting, as we don't really notice any difference in Evan's behavior with his aid on--he doesn't act like he hears anything. The bone conduction aid was mentioned again, which we did try briefly and also didn't seem to make much of a difference. We will know more about how we are going to proceed after Evan's appointment with Dr. Sie in February (she would be Evan's surgeon for the implant).
