i had a great few days with the family.
That was so well worth having.
LOVE laughing with my children and husband.
Yes i am still me…the crock…the chiarian.
Still recovering from brain surgery.
Or has recovery stopped?
But i did all the sensible things like
- using my cane
- sleep each day
- sat during EVERY match
- sat on beach
- even use a wheelchair for long treks
- even got laughs at it and the antics of the lads pushing me
- took GOOD pain cocktail
so i should NOT forget this is the trade-off.
a good day means a recovery day.
TODAY i hurt :
- back of head
- back of neck
- legs weak
- arms unusually weak
- eyes tired
- was slurred speech yesterday
- head too heavy
- need to lie down
THAT is a Chiari Malformation – a Chiari Malformation and what it does to a life.
Am NEVER gonna love my recovery day…but at least i have no choice but RESPECT IT….
sure my brain would just turn me off!
