spring flowers

I love watching the flowers grow...I have been having trouble with my blood pressure being too low this last week, I fainted once and fell down the stairs. Now my headache is worse, so I am trying to stay positive and enjoy the "flowers"..... :)

Today is Mom and Dad's anniversary, and all I can think about is how lucky we are to have them in our lives to share time with and enjoy their company, their love, and most of all their wisdom.

Boasting and the same time

Although everyone may get tired of my boasting...I am still going to talk about how I am still feeling better. 18 days of better is fabulous to me. After five years of constant skullbusting headaches, to have less of a headache for this long feels like I am dreaming. I am able to do so much more....I have been scrapbooking (the trip to India of course), and yesterday, I planted my garden with not too much help. It is so amazing, and I love it!!! I have been able to do alot more with and for Samuel and Jessica. Watching soccer is so much more enjoyable!! The list goes on...Now for the rehabilitation work to begin, as I have alot of strengthening to do. I start physio on July 8th, and have been starting my exercises at home to get ready.
I used to tell myself that it can't be that bad, and I must be getting wimpy so to speak with the neck pain and headaches. Now that it is so much less, I know for sure that I was not wimpy at all, I was coping well. I am so glad that I persevered and did not give up. I am content with my insistance that there must be some thing, some treatment, some surgery to help get rid of or at least decrease my pain and muscle spasm. I commend myself on having the strength to figure out where I needed to go for help, and keep on trying. I am so lucky that Mom came to India with me, as it made the trip easier and just better.
So, as I look back and ahead there is a certain contentment that things went well, and will continue to improve. What a difference from looking ahead wondering how I was going to cope with the next hour of debilitating pain. thankful and hopeful is what I feel

My Funny Girl

She decided that she wanted her hair blue!!! It was fun and she loves it.

back on my feet again

I have had the pleasure of feeling well again since May 3rd, with an increase in medications.  The funny thing is, because I enjoy it so much, until I looked back at the me it seemed like a long time. So, yesterday I was thinking it is time to start planning on my increase in exercise to strengthen, and get started on physio. Then when I realized that it is only 8 good days in a row, I laughed at myself at the same time as patted myself on the back. Initiative is not my weakness. Yeah!!! Obviously I still have the enthusiasm, or the drive I guess that it is going to take to get stronger, rehabilitate back to higher functioning. That....makes me happy!! I can do it, I just have to be more patient with myself. On that note, I would like to thank all my supportive blog readers and their comments on encouragement. I am thinking ahead, and excited for what is to come.
