Day 8 – Much better than yesterday!!

Today I can get up and go to the bathroom on my own!!!  Well, with a little help, and it wears me out every time…but walking those 10 feet is a great milestone after being stuck in bed for a week.  To go from not being able to lift my head, to being able to walk those 10 steps to the toilet…what joy!

With Stuart’s help, we even brushed my hair today.  I do believe a little family of mice were about to move in, they’d already made big nest!  Thank you to whoever, invented the detangling spray..  Perhaps, Johnson and Johnson – No More Tears detangler…I have an off brand, but still no tears!  It did wonders.  The mice will not want to take up residence now!

The pain is minor to moderate, depending on the time.  The headaches are still there, sometimes much worse than others.  Pain medication or Maxalt seems to be helping with those.  I’m still seeing blood from my ear, but nothing yellow, and it appears my temperature has returned to normal!

I really didn’t expect to have such strides so fast, but I’m thrilled that I was wrong.  I know, I may have some set-backs.  Especially since the feeling in my ear still isn’t completely back.  Let’s hope that the severe vertigo stays away!  (we even got my ear ring back in.  I thought I wouldn’t see that ear ring back in.  When I turned 35 I had my upper ear pierced, sill I know, but it meant a lot to me.  So we took advantage of my ear still being a bit numb and put it back in!)

To close…a drawing I colored last night/today.

…Welcome Christmas bring your cheer
Fahoo fores dahoo dores
Welcome all Whos far and near….

Happy Holidays to all my friends – far and near.

  1. Glad to hear that you are making progess! When the Dr. Suess whos down in whoville gather round even after the Grinch has “stolen” Christmas and start forrayay, I never fail to feel a tear or two well up. Please, the turkey in our house has always been “roast beast”


    1. Phylor… so I gather you like my tree? my homage to Dr. Seuss and the entire town of Whoville, including the Grinch!

      Roast Beast…who could ask for a better main course!
