A Normal Night
The whole prom experience was absolutely amazing!! I felt great the whole night. It was the first time in a long time that I had gotten dressed up and felt put together. Being sick, I kind of downgraded from looking nice to pajamas or t-shirts and jeans, but last night reminded me of how good it felt to be dressed up.
I went with two friends. We got our hair done, had pictures taken and we were off. There was no way I could of even danced if I wanted to because of the strobe lights, but it was still awesome to be able to be there and take in the experience.
Our theme was Hollywood. They gave two stars out. One was to our assistant principal whose son just passed away from cancer. When they started talking about the next one they were giving out I new immediately I was going to have to go on stage. I knew when he said "Seniors, you have a classmate who has been sick" that it was me. I am the only one in my class who has been. It took all I had to walk up there and hold it together. So I received a star with the senior class signatures on it. I really do have a great and supportive class.
We went bowling in our dresses and apparently everyone else had the same idea too. That was another thing I have not been able to do because I have not been able to lift.
We got home about 1:00. It was a great night all around. I really am so glad I went.
Doctor Henderson`s office should be calling tomorrow to schedule shunt surgery for the summer. I have also developed what I thought was a spinal fluid leak around my tethered cord incision on my lumbar area. It it swollen and sticks out and is a little purple. Dr. Henderson said it was probably not a leak. He thinks it is lymphatic fluid. So no worries there.
