On Wednesday I go in for Dr. Gray to look for my spinal fluid leak and give me a blood patch. (I think it’s so cool that they can repair it with your own blood.)
I’m so nervous, excited, scared, apprehensive…….
I want this to work so much. I keep envisioning my life without all the turmoil caused by Meniere’s, and all the pain caused by my migraines. Do you think if I believe it enough it will come true? Or am I just setting myself up for heart ache? Either way, I’m trying to be prepared. And I’m trying to stay busy until Wednesday, so I don’t think about it too much.
Today I went Christmas Shopping with my cousin. I was so nice to spend some time with her. After about 3 1/2 hours, of shopping, and lunch, and just visiting I started feeling off. You know that feeling, I’m not quite at vertigo, but if I moved my head too fast I’d probably fall down? So I took a Valium, and we headed home. We made sure to just go shopping close to my house, just in case something happened Faith could get me home in a hurry. Luckily, everything calmed down after I got home and started to rest and got a little something to eat. I still hate it when things like that happen though.
Tomorrow, I’m going to be preparing for Thanksgiving. I’m going to cut up all the veggies I need, toast the bread for my stuffing, mix up a herb butter to rub on the turkey, make the cranberry sauce, and make sure we have everything we need. I’m also going to plan out a time schedule for all the dishes. When each crock pot should be turned on, so that everything is done at the same time.
Thankfully, the friend who is coming for dinner doesn’t care if my house is messy. I know Stuart will straighten up some, and I’ve begged him to vacuum. The pet hair is out of control. It’s funny, I said that to my husband, and he said he hadn’t noticed. I see hair everywhere.
May you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I will let you know how the spinal fluid blood patch goes, as soon as I feel like getting on the computer after the procedure. Who knows maybe I’ll have pictures from the hospital.
I already have a lot to be Thankful for, but it would be nice if we had a whole lot more to be thankful for in a couple of days.
This is the time of year to remember to be grateful, and thankful for all that we have, and remember those who are less fortunate. May your Thanksgiving find you with much to be grateful for, and realize how much people are thankful for you. Also, may all your Thanksgiving meals be scrumptious.

I’m thinking of you and wishing you lots of luck for tomorrow! I know things will go well for you. I am hoping this patch will provide the relief you deserve. If it works, we’ll all celebrate along with you and if by some slim chance it doesn’t, we’ll all help dig in with you to find something that does.
Good luck. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving yourself!! Post when you can. You’ve got a lot of people out there cheering you on!
Hey there Wendy,
Wishing you lots of luck as well. I can’t help but think that our stories sound so similar. I too went Christmas shopping with my mom this past weekend. After about 3 hours, I started feeling off. Needed a valium before heading home. It’s crazy for me to read about someone else who understands what “feeling off” means. 🙂 I truly think positive thinking can only help. As Nicki stated, if it works, we will all celebrate with you, and if for some reason it doesn’t, we won’t give up trying to find something that does. Have a wonderful holiday. We’re all rooting for you!!! Cant’ wait to see your updated post.
