Week 6 & 7 Recovery
Well I had a little bit of an issue early in 6th week... but it was the nerves waking up and it was painful. It let me dizzy and just felt bad. It only lasted a couple of days. But the pain shows up off and on and throws me off. I'm getting out and walking more. I just can't walk as fast as I use to ....dizziness kicks in so slow going for me. I had a great time for my birthday(March 28). Had breakfast with my mom and then a long nap(3 hours) then dinner with hubby at a hibachi restaurant. It was fun. I was concerned if the noise from the chef would bother me and it didn't. The lights were low and it wasn't real noisy. I loved it. Then my daughter came in town to pamper me. So her and her best friend Symone took me to the MAC store to get my makeup done. I felt nice to brighten up my look. It felt to nice to feel pretty. I enjoyed being in the mall. I has been a long time since I have been able to walk around a mall. We got there early to make it easier on me. By the time we left it was pretty busy and things were bothering me. Between the lights and the people and just mall noise it was getting to be a bit much and I started to get pains in my head. Then we went to get our nails done. That was nice and relaxing. It has been over a year since I had my nails done so I enjoyed the pampering. Then we went to a nice Mexican restaurant that reminded Nay of Texas. I needed a very long nap after that day.
Now week 7. I went to church (where my husband is the pastor) Sunday. Loved it. I miss my Faith Church Baltimore family and fellowship. I was tired but it was a good tired. The noise bother me some. My head feels like it is tightening along the incision and I still get shocks of sharp pains at time. I drove this week. I had to take Dylan to the DR. for a checkup. I did good driving. Now having a toddler all day by myself is another story. I get tired very easy. I don't have the energy to care for a 2 year old all day. I thank God for Aunt Ann. She has been a true blessing watching him during the day while I heal. When I rest up during the day I have the energy to care for him when he comes home in the evening.
Now I am experiencing a sweet taste in my mouth all the time. I go to see the dr. next week. I'm not getting headaches as much. Just the sharp pains that come and go. I can actually say I am feeling good. I feel my life is better since Mindy the Meningioma was removed. I am getting stronger and stronger every day. God gets all the Glory. I trusted Him. I trusted He would care for me and He did. I am proof that God will keep his promises. But that will be another whole post...lol. I'm not 100% yet I would say 70%. There are still some things I can't do but I am healing and happy. I'm gonna try water aerobics this weekend to see if I can handle it. I am walking more than I was able to before the surgery. I am taking one day at a time. But I am having more good days than bad.
So very Thankful.
