One Whole Month

Today was exactly one month since surgery!

Now sing along with me...
Happy Birthday Month-iversary to youuu, dear mesh thingy holding my brain in place
Happy Month-iversary to youuu, pesky piece of suture thats sticking out but won't budge
oh, wait
you don't know that one? 
its okay, its not all that common.

I'm posting this late because I was so busy today with things like

  • catching up on some phone calls 
  • making coffee (I like it again!) 
  • emailing multi-paragraphed emails 
  • neck stretching 
  • showering (a surprisingly exhausting event)
  • walking with Neil around the reservoir - twice - which equals about 2 miles!
  • eating a dinner of my favorite take out
  • and reading in bed 
I'm so much better than I thought I'd be at four weeks and I look forward to (slowly) adding more good things to my days of rest!


  1. Happy anniversary to you and that mesh thingy. You've come do far! Truly- my hero. Marilyn n Ron

  2. Ugh! I hate those little leftover suture bits! Both of Jessie's surgeries have resulted in a leftover prickly piece of thread. (Yes, I just equated you with my dog. Sorry.)

  3. YES. You like COFFEE again! i was praying for that.....seriously....

    much love

  4. Yay! So happy you can look back and see how far you have come! Just imagine what the next month will bring!

    Hugs, Gabby
