No T13 again today. I am slowly trying to get back to blogging. I've been giving myself a few hours to read/comment/post. And I am enjoying it. But I need more time to just take it easy. Tonight I over did it and took advantage of the weather. I went for a walk that was a little too long. I visited with my parents for a little too long. I washed dishes (they always last WAY TOO LONG).
My head still hurts. The nerves are really fighting back. I have my usual "8" headache. On top of that my head continues to feel raw like someone has poured boiling water on it. The left side of my head stings constantly and feels a little worse than the right side. The top, sides and crown of my head pulls and stings everytime I open or close my eyes more than a simple blink. The sides and back of my head pulls and stings when I open my mouth. And it's all over if I bend or turn my head. I still can't put pressure on my head at all... EXCEPT for the small spot that's NUMB around my right incision. It's looking like that's the only spot that's obeying and surrendering to the cut nerve. But at least it's something.
My incisions are healing. The glue is starting to fall off. Last night I was pulling a piece out that was stuck to my hair. Then I felt the trickle down my neck. Yeah. I pulled the glue off part of the incision that wasn't healed and opened it. I had to call my daddy to come over because I couldn't see the incision. And it was obvious I couldn't feel anything there. Yeah. I'm a good nurse :)

My friend Mia's brother has designed a new card game called Parlay. It is receiving great reviews. It's either Hasbro or Mattel that's looking to sign the game. Which I think's pretty cool no matter which one it is. So go check it out. Oh. And there's a little "Buy Parlay" button at the bottom ;)
(Hi Mia! Love ya!)

This sounds so incredibly painful. That you are able to post as you are just amazes me. You certainly need the I am strong award. I wish there was more I could do for you other than continue to give encouragement. I will continue to pray and here is a virtual hug. Take care. {{{{{{{{{{{}}}}}}}}}}}}

Sorry to hear you are in pain. It's horrible to read that normal is an '8' in the pain scale. How can we have so many advances in so many ways and still we have people in still so much pain.
I hope doggie is doing better today. Congrats to Mia's brother, i hope he becomes filthy rich and enjoys his success. Hugs.

Kimmy, I hope you feel better soon. Are the headaches supposed to be bad before they get better. Don't worry about us, we miss you but we will be here when you are feeling better. You do what you need to to get back to 100%, that's more important.

Oh bummer on the head. :( Did they say how long it might take for it to become better? Maybe it will just take a while? Which certainly doesn't make it easier... as for snickers-- glad she's okay, and no anal glands. I laughed. I'm bad. But I've often asked for someone to just cut off whatever was hurting... maybe I should have been a dog... ? LOL!

That's a lot of hurting. Hope things heal quickly for you and you can return to your regular routines.
