Well I am in week 4 of my recovery from brain surgery. I am doing well. Walking without the walker. I even got to go for a walk outside on one of the warm days last week. It felt so good to be outside. Hubby took me out for a ride and some frozen yogurt on Saturday. The car ride was ok, became a little nauseous and the sunlight was a bit much but it was nice to out and about. needed a nap after our little date. I have been having pain at the incision site.. a throbbing pain. The Dr. office said it was my nerves waking up. I still have some numb parts on my head. This weather change has been giving me headaches a lot. It is called barometer head, where the barometric pressure effects my brain... it sucks. I can tell you when a storm is coming now. Oh yeah..... I got to sleep in the bed room last night..YAYYYYYY... I have been sleeping on our love seat to sleep sitting up. If I lay down flat the pressure hurts quite bit and I will wake up with a headache. I piled up a lot of pillows for support and my neck pillow and I was able to sleep with no pain. I didn't wake up with a headache...now I did slide down some during my sleep but my head was still prop up enough. It was nice being next to my hubby again :). I am not driving yet and I don't bend over anymore. I do exercise some by doing squats and knee raises. It feels good. I do get fatigued easier and more often but I am taking it one day at a time and listening to my body when I need to rest. A lot of noise and lights and motion still bothers me but I feel I'm getting stronger everyday.
My creative juices have been flowing like crazy. There is so much I want to make it is hard to know where to start. So Mindy the Meningioma didn't screw with my creativity. I have been crocheting since it is something I can do sitting still. I will start sewing next week. I will start my jewelery making up again also. I am excited that my head is clear again and I can focus better than before the surgery. So keep a look out for my creations. Candy J Boutique
