Ok today marks one week since my brain surgery, I am doing well. I had my first trip almost fall with the walker the last night, I was a little to tired and weak trying to make it from the bathroom. It is amazing how much your brain takes in when you think your doing nothing. I notice I feel awesome in the morning but as the day goes on the busier it gets around me the more tired I get and the slower my brain starts to work, I have to think a little harder I notice I get jittery like my brain is on overload. It was a bit unnerving to have that trip up cause I haven't felt that uneasy on my feet since day 2 of the surgery. As I sit here I am listening to some yoga zen music app I found on my kindle. I realize I need to take some time everyday just to calm my brain down from the everyday stimulus that is around me. The music has helped a lot. My hands stop shaking and my heart has calmed down. I'm really going to get into this meditating more now. I plan on doing whatever I can to help my brain heal best.

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
