Today, we washed my hair! Wow, a bit of an ordeal, but it was worth it! I’m glad I have dry hair, but even my hair was beginning to get a bit gross after 17 days of not being washed! (I can hear the collective…”Ewwww” from all of you right now!) I did use a bit of the dry shampoo, but it didn’t work that great, it’s hard to use on long hair.
I wish I would have had one of these…in my size.

Recovery from the Endolymphatic surgery is still progressing, things are starting to itch! So it must be healing, right? and the little bit of hair they shaved is all prickly, it feels funny…and itches too.
I see my doc on Tuesday, so I’ll have a better update then.
Strangest thing, recently…past few days, I’ve been able to hear more. I had a headache and decided to sleep early the other day, I kept hearing this sound..thought it was tinnitus, but it was so strange, so I put in my hearing aid to see, and found out I was hearing the TV, very low, but still I could hear it! So I took my hearing aid out and got hubby to talked to me, I heard it! Yes, very muffled, but I heard it with my left ear, the one they just operated on, the one with 0% word recognition the end of November. Again, today, I took my hearing aid out of my right ear and could hear people talking, could understand…they were very close to me and have a good frequency for me…but I heard it! I’m flabbergasted. I know it could just be fluctuating again, but it’s strange.
The surgery on this ear has been so different from the surgery on the right ear. With the Rt. ear…no vertigo, a lot of pain, ear would drain a fluid (not bloody) but a lot of fluid, hearing dropped and never came back but stabilized so hearing aid helps a lot. Left ear… much vertigo, not a lot of pain, ear is draining blood (not large amounts most of the time, but blood not that clear fluid), and hearing seems to be improving.
I’ve realized that when we go in for surgery and ask the doctor what to expect, he can’t know for sure. Every person is different, and every surgery is different. I had the same surgery by the same surgeon on both ears, and the recovery was as different as could be!
I do hope they both have a high results rate! I really want to stop spinning multiple times a week…ummm day!
Vertigo bad! Standing, walking, washing hair…Good!
a great milestone today. (must make note, have to remember how important each little accomplishment is.)
Do you ever feel like you have accepted everything, are doing well, being productive….ect. Then have a dream of what you were like in your old life? That happened to me last night. I’ve been a bit melancholy all day. Next Post…I’ll tell you about it. Warning, it will be another T.M.I. post. Sex will be included.)
Here’s to clean hair!!
