First off THANK YOU to everyone who donated, helped or came to the spaghetti dinner. It was a HUGE success and it was great to see everyone! I posted some pictures from the day below.
I am two weeks out of surgery. This Thursday will make three. I am taking NO PAIN MEDICINE for the first time in three years. Yes, I do have a very high pain tolerance, but I can truly tell that I am pain free. I am feeling better than ever. The past three years have physically and emotionally drained me in so many different ways. I am finally back to my old self. I do know that Chiari and EDS are always going to be a part of me and sometimes will be more difficult than others. It is just who I am and I am going to have the make the best of it. I am not tired all the time and I can make it through the whole day without a nap. For once I actually feel like doing stuff with my family and friends. It is the best feeling in the world. I can not wait to graduate and get a fresh start. I finally feel like I am reaching the end of the tunnel and seeing a bright future.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. They mean more to me than you will ever know.
