Thanks for all of your support, prayers, and thoughts! I made it home from the hospital just in time for my birthday 11/25 from my surgery on 11/23!
Everything is going well! I do sleep away most of the day, and am constantly tired. Thank goodness I have cable TV. My mom and I have been spending a lot of time watching the Christmas specials!
It's been the most amazing feeling having my hands/feet be warm for the first time in years, no ear ringing, and no migraine headaches or vertigo! Only problem is just the pressure from my insicion, which I figured would happen. My neurosurgeon was very helpful, and stayed at the hospital until I came around to being normal, and briefed me on everything! He said as soon as he made the incision into the dura he would feel and see the pressure being released. He was glad we caught it when I did or I would have been in pretty bad shape very quickly! He even took pictures of my surgery to share with me, because he thought I would enjoy seeing it, and he was right! How intriguing to see my operation, and having him explain everything,
The procedure went well, now just waiting for the stitches to come out, and my energy level to return!
I never would have gotten through this as smoothly without all of your advise and kindness!
It feels great to be in the "Zipperhead" Club! :) God bless all of you!
