How dare I!

How dare I leave you sweet friends hanging for three whole days!

I have no idea what's gotten into me.

Oh wait, could it have to do with just getting out of the hospital after having three brain surgeries?!

Yeah, that sounds about right.

But really, there's just no excuse for not posting to you guys when you were so sweet to pray for me for two whole weeks.

Frankly, I haven't done anything blog-worthy since getting home on Tuesday. It's been a lot of laying in my recliner, watching TV and eating popsicles.

The pain is being managed fairly well, but last night I had a really bad night and went to bed at 8:30. Apparently, I really needed the sleep since I didn't wake up till 7. I have a stabbing pain in my head at the incision site at the moment, so I'm thinking I'll go take another 5 mg of Oxycodone. That's the only painkiller I'm on at the moment.

As long as everything goes well, I'll be moving up to Campbell Labor Day weekend. I'll get the sutures out on the 8th (and finally be able to shower!), and start classes on the 9th. (My cut schedule has no classes on Tuesday, so it's no big deal.)

That's really about it. Now, I get to go give myself a sponge bath. Yippee.

Did I mention I really can't wait till the 8th?

  1. This is so funny! Today at work I was thinking - hmmm - what's going on with Mallory?

    I'm glad you're doing well. The incisions on my shoulder (there are three) are at the ITCHING phase of healing. Very annoying. I'm still taking vicodin at night to help with the pain, but I'm managing with advil during the day. I start physical therapy on Tuesday - not looking forward to it! But my goal is to raise my arm over my head, so I guess I'd better do what the doctor says...

    I know it's not brain surgery - but I thought I would distract you from your pain with stories about mine. Did it work?
