Feeling Fragile

Scott took me to see Glazier today, and it was a pretty easy visit, really. He said that my passing out incidents sound like vasovagal syncope, a fancy phrase for fainting when they don’t know the cause. My brain and head is doing a lot of healing, there are pockets of fluid that are perfectly normal, and for some reason, when you touched mine, I passed out. No big deal. Perfectly normal. Stop touching my head. Stop tilting my head when I take a shower, and basically, just keep chilling out and letting myself heal. He said that none of my symptoms ever really made sense anyway and so why would I start following rules now?

Oh well. It hasn’t happened in a few days. The swelling is down quite a bit, and maybe I’m past it anyway. Here’s hoping.

He removed the sutures which was only painful a couple of times, so I’m glad that’s over. Leave my head alone until Wednesday — keep it dry, don’t scratch it, then shower on Wednesday, briefly. Alrighty. He liked the way everything is healing up, and I’ll see him again in a month.

I have an appointment with rehab tomorrow, and they’ll get me moving and back up to speed, hopefully. I feel very fragile, and I want to be back to being strong and confident, please.

  1. You are strong! You are invincible! You have been down there on the floor, and you have gained wisdom born of pain! Well, you’ve been in pain, at least.

  2. Kudos 2 u, Lisa! Whenever we have rough days, am a childrens social worker, πŸ˜– i always look up 2 & admire a strong woman! U most definitely fit that category! Yur body will ever so slowly, but w/the help of yur girls it should speed up the process!πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ€—πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸΌ

  3. Nothing can keep you down very long ! Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your skull can’t be re-built in one either. The challenge seems to be to rest, relax and recover ~ GOOD LUCK !

  4. You have really been through the mill and you’re still here. I hope the recovery phase moves along well and fast for you. ❀️
