I've spent the day doing nothing. I haven't even done the dishes. Bob
is taking me to dinner tonight at 135 Prime, my favorite restaurant in
Waco. I was so tired from yesterday that I didn't want to push it and be
too tired for our dinner out. So, I've watched Eat Pray Love twice
today and napped. I still have the headache. This is day 3, but its not
too bad. I'm giving it until Monday. If its not completely gone, I'll
call Dr. Kim. The lymph node is almost gone..and I feel like I'm
speaking a little better. Mom is coming back next week to help me work
on some wedding issues, or at least to force me to make a few decisions.
One problem with Chiari is trouble with decision making. I really don't
see an improvement in that symptom..and I've got less than 60 days
until the big day. I can't believe I'm such a lucky girl.
there was a contest on the internet. To enter you had to answer the
question, "If you could stay any age for the rest of your life, what age
would that be?"
I thought really hard..for about 5 seconds before answering (the prize is a Le Creuset pot):
would stay the age I am now, 44. The past year has been the most
wonderful and most frightening of my life. I fell in love with an
amazing man that loves and supports me through everything. He encourages
me to not only have dreams, but to do all I can to make them a reality.
Then, I was diagnosed with Chiari and faced brain surgery. The months
and weeks of searching for the right neurosurgeon and living with the
increasing symptoms, and then going "under the knife" were
horrible...but he loved me through it...every day...every tear...every
fear. Now I have just to heal and have a better life than ever before...and I have the perfect person to share it with."
I must say, I laughed at all of the people that said, "I'd be 21 again"..Ha! No Way...
Now..I have to go start slowly getting ready. I have a date..and for the first time in 3 weeks..I'd like to look pretty.
Have a great weekend!
