Now besides food... I am doing well. I was able to go all day with no pain meds. Now I do have a lot a pressure on the right side and towards the back of my head. It is very uncomfortable. I have to watch how I position my head to keep a lot of pressure from building up. I am able to get up and around and it feels good to be moving about. I am resting so don't fuss at me. I still need a walker but getting stronger everyday. Now the next thing I want to do is wash my hair.... I so happy I went natural when I did but this mess needs a good washing. I will be able to after Thursday when the stitches come out. I can look girly again. I plan on sporting a cute mohawk for a bit until my hair grows out more. I'm recovering YAYYYYY Lord you are Awesome!!

Thank God for the Facebook support Groups Meningioma Mommas, mind over meningioma
They have helped me so much. Like I didn't know the steroids that I take would change how food taste but I will get it back after the meds wore off. I was pretty mad when I had my ball park beef hotdog and it taste like mush. I can't taste anything savory. and some sweet stuff just doesn't taste right. So I really don't eat unless my body is asking for food cause I find no pleasure in eating.
I also learned to sleep sitting up cause to much pressure on my brain laying down and trying to get up. actually I have been quite comfortable. I do miss sleeping next to my hubby. I won't start outpatient therapy for another week. I have a follow up on Thursday. I get the pathology report on my tumor. Right now...... my life have really slowed down. I guess I will take time to smell the roses

I was able to walk a flight a stairs yesterday very well. I just have to use a few tricks to help my brain heal and regain more independence. I will be going to outpatient therapy to help me get stronger. I wish I could go to church today but just a walk to the bathroom is enough excitement for me these days..lol But God knows my praise!! I will be back soon Faith Church Baltimore
PS. I am asking for help with meals for my family since I am the family chef...lol A website has been set up to help schedule meals if you would like to help. I normally don't ask for help but I realize the brain is very sensitive and I will take a little more time getting back to my normal routine. Because of my husband's job and pastoring a church and taking care of home I know the meals would be one less worry for him. So if you would like to bless us with a meal please inbox me for the website and password to set a date. Thank you for your help.
