Roller Coaster

Since the surgery, Carrie has been on a bit of an energy roller coaster. She has short bursts of energy, after which she needs a nap to recoup. The doctor said this is common for surgery involving the central nervous system. It will just take time to regain the strength she had before surgery.

On the brighter side, Carrie will be going home tomorrow! Dr. Brain 2.0 (it's the weekend, and this weekend Dr. Brain is not on call) came by today and said everything looks good and she can plan to go home tomorrow. The main thing is that she listens to her body, doesn't push herself too hard, and takes naps when she needs to. Dr. Brain 2.0 also removed the gauze turban and said the incision looks great. Carrie has converted over to the head scarf.

What a crazy week. It's amazing to look back over the past few weeks and think about all that has transpired and how things have worked out. The Lord really has blessed us with how things have gone.

I think it's time for some oreos.

Rockin' the head scarf.

Way to rock this surgery! This is a great time to learn that when people ask what they can do to help, it's ok to give them suggestions. Don't rob them of their blessing. You can be superwoman again later :-) Blessings to all of you. I'll continue to keep your family in my prayers.
