I learned my lesson, and have kept the pain meds on a strict schedule. Dr. Kim’s office called around noon yesterday..and I found that the pain level I have is normal, everything is normal. They said to wait a few more days before trying to back off the pain pills again..to rest..that my brain is inflamed in the two surgical areas and it basically has to re-learn how to process pain while adjusting to the changes in CSF pressure. I’m no neuro guru..so this is all new territory to me. I had read alot about post op care..but nothing told me how uncomfortable this would be. My sweet Chiari friend, Megan had warned me..but I didn’t really get it…NOW I GET IT! I’m thankful for her as she has allowed me to vent and whine to her. I had a visit from Linda Stallard yesterday, she brought us a wonderful pot roast for dinner last night. Later in the day, Tami and Jason came for a visit. Jason is still waiting on results on his possible aneurysm. It was nice to sit on the sofa and laugh like a normal person. Friends are priceless right now. It really lifts my spirits to visit with people. Yes, It’s exhausting, but very worthwhile. Mom has agreed to stay until after my post op appt. on February 5. I’m so glad to have her here…I couldn’t imagine being home alone everyday right now.
Have a wonderful Wednesday. Thanks for your continued support!

Surprise?…yes..but in a…

My website is under construction–converting it to more of a blog and removing content from my coaching business.  Forgive the confusion…I’ll have it sparkling new in a jiffy. (PSSST…..Watch for new content…There is a new book in the works!)

Writing With The Muse

Writing it out— Just a note about letting the muse work. I noticed a marked difference in the content of my writing while in Carmel. Mainly, the difference is that now I sit down with no forethought of what I will write. If I’m doing research or structuring chapters, that is a different mindset. I’m talking about…
