When I was very young doctors discovered that a rare disease was eroding my inner ear. It resulted in major surgery (wall up mastoidectomy) as a child and permanent hearing loss in one ear. My drawings document this journey from initial discovery of the disease, to surgical removal and resolution. Images of my surgeon’s concern at the discovery, and delight at the conclusion of my surgery, frame this documentation.
