Stopped short in my tracks

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Well. The course was great,surgery was a success and my hearing was restored, however an unforseen complication has left me unable to sit or stand unassisted, walking only tiny bits with a cane and losi g optimism quickly. I'm sick many times a day, even with medication. Even without sedation (which helps me cope with the extreme dizziness), my mind is muddled, I can't think clearly. I'm not myself. I tried to get out for a short outing that left me staggering and slurring words. I know the old adage of ones health being all that matters. Oh lord, do I know it now! My understanding of the situation is that it is temporary and soon I will be well, and all I can think of is how I just can't wait to make the most of that, and renew my resolve to live a lifestyle that will take me, WELL into older age. Unforseen circumstances will. Happen. My body needs to be strong enough to bounce back. So this is what I think about between bouts of 'sleep' (and, admittedly, crying) these past 12 days. Thank god for family and friends to help and encourage me to get through this. And when I'm better, look out world, it's time for me to get on with the life I've been preparing for for so long!

    What a horrible situation! All credit to you that it has only strengthened your determination to keep on getting stronger and healthier and enjoying life to the full as soon as you are able. I'm hoping that is very very soon.

    I glad you were able to do this blog and post a picture - you have such a great spirit. I've had bad vertigo a couple of times in my life, and frankly, wanted to unscrew my head at the neck! Do you know what the unseen complication is? Have they knocked your balance-control-system out of place - I know there are tiny bones and chambers that send messages back to the brain etc. Or is it the anaesthetic that is spinning your around. Or is it a virus that's got in? Well - all that is probably too much reading I expect. I'm one of those people who always wants to try to solve the problem!

    Over and above all that - lots of love and healing coming your way.
