I will be having surgery #6 on June 12th. That is three days after graduation. Just the way I wanted it. Dr. Henderson will be putting a shunt in. They said I should only be in the hospital two days. That is all I really know. No one ever wants surgery, but I am so tired of having a headache almost every single day of my life, so I cant wait.
On Thursday I went with the Preschool on their last day of school field trip to Dan Nicholas Park. It was lots of fun and good to see those sweet kids. That night was the dance recital. Baylie and Lily both did a wonderful job. I felt GREAT that whole day.
Friday I had physical therapy to work on my range of motion in my neck. I still have a LONG way to go. I am no where near where I need to be. That day I had a horrendous headache. I felt worse than I had in a long time. I always have the headache, but that put me in bed and no pain medicine was working. I am allergic to Oxycontin, but I was desperate so I decided to try it. I took it and two benadryl and within an hour I felt great. I cant remember the last time I have taken that strong of a medicine. I have found though that the early I wake up and take my medicine and am doing something the better I seem to feel. I have added another dose of Diamox. I am now taking four 250mg doses.
Today I felt fine and stained the deck as well as went to Mooresville and got some graduation party stuff.
I am looking so forward to Tuesday when I will be babysitting a sweet girl from preschool and her awesome brother that is in Kindergarten. I love them both to death and I think it will do me some good. I love to babysit and have not been asked to in forever because of everything going on. I feel comfortable doing it though and it is one of the things I truly miss. I am beyond excited! It gives me some normalcy that I have been missing. :)
I hope everyone has a PAIN FREE Memorial Day Weekend!
