Today is Friday -- my first day semi-coherent. Thus far I've been grumpy and angry, but today they put a blood patch to fix the leak of CSF fluid from my brain into back....and now I'm a happy non-grumpy woman.
With my spinal fluid headache behind me I finally feel like what I thought a brain surgery patient would feel like...and this ain't so bad. Bring it on! Just got up for the first time and ahhh the joys of peeing in a toilet. Hoping it's mine by Sunday. Thank you so much for all your prayers. If my face wasn't working plus I had this ugly scar I might have to hide under a rock for a while but I'm going to wear it out proudly. Cause I'm proud of the path it has taken me to get it out.
And life is so much sweeter when you have gnarly scars to make you realize just how wonderful it is to be alive!!! Love you allllll so much!!!! Suzy
