11:45am (Cali Time)- Lewin update

Dr Lewin said things are really going well so far. She is warming up the flap and has already taken part of his left ear lobe to put on the lobe of the right ear - how nice of Manny to share his ears with eachother! This will help in making it more smooth at the bottom. She has also taken the groin skin graft. Dr Roberson is now starting his part of drilling a hole in his head (yuck) and creating the ear canal. While he works, Dr Lewin prepares the medpor implant, carving it and making it look good. When Roberson is done, she starts her 4+ hour work on putting in the implant.
