Back in Tulsa
The incisions and extension connectors on my back are very tender, the battery in my hip is sore/tender, and my neck range of motion is greatly restricted and painful still. My neck is so stiff, and feeling the wires move around as I move my neck is so... weird! I'm trying heat and neck stretches, but it's difficult. I tried walking on our treadmill for 5 minutes today, and it gave me a headache. My migraines have been much fewer, and I'm eating better than I was before the surgery... I think I'm gaining back part of the weight I lost after the accident and from all the meds... finally!
The 4.5 or 5 hour drive back here to Tulsa the other day (luckily, Jeremy drove the whole way) was BRUTAL for my head and body, so hopefully I'll be doing better in a week and a half when I have to make the trip back down to Texas for more doctors... or at least take some pain meds for the ride.
I've got a few ideas for some upcoming posts... I'm just having to work on things in little pieces. THANK YOU ALL for your care, support, thoughts, and prayers. I really appreciate (and need) it. BLESSINGS!
