I was hoping last week that the daze I have been in for the last two years had finally passed. No such luck! :( Last week was great and provides me with hope that someday, I will not always feel strange. It had been so long since I felt good, I almost forgot what it feels like to be "normal". I'm not sure what happened last week that made such a noticeable difference. Unfortunately, this week it has been more of the same old routine: dizzy, spacey, "out of it", confused, like I'm in a daze. It sucks, and I'm tired of it! At least there is hope that I can feel better, last week was a first..now if we can only recreate last week's magic. Crossing my fingers!
Welcome to our blog! I originally started this blog in November 2010 just prior to having a major brain surgery to remove a large bleeding cavernous angioma from a deep part of my brain. You can best understand the gravity of our experience by reading the first several entries.(Nov 2010-Dec 2010) I wrote the first one and my sweet, adoring husband, John, wrote the next several (while I was too sick to do much of anything) that documented surgery, immediate recovery, and our reaction to the surgery complication (stroke)that was revealed 2 days after surgery. This recovery process has been difficult but we are making it. We appreciate all the kind words of encouragement we have received and we would like to thank everyone that has participated in helping us along this difficult journey. Also, if you have any questions about my personal experience, please leave them as a comment or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond although I am not a doctor and this is not a replacement for medical care or advise. Please ask a real professional, or probably several. :) I hope to be able to help at least one person along the challenging road of brain surgery and recovery.
