I guess I could have shared pictures of my brain before now, but in any case this is a picture after the tumor was removed from my brain. The "pocket" on the back of my neck is where the tumor used to be and keeps trying to fill with fluid and not drain. That was the case when this picture was taken.
When the spot fills with fluid, it causes me to experience many of the same old symptoms of having the tumor... Guess that's why some days are good and some days are kind of bad...
Yesterday was the official 6 month "anniversary" of my brain surgery, but this picture just goes to show what a long road recovering from something like this really is... Sometimes I get frusterated with myself for still not feeling good or being so tired all the time, but looking at this picture is a good reminder for myself that these things take time...

Yesterday I pruned all my bushes and they were WAY overgrown. They haven't bee pruned since last year!! Today I'd like to work some in my house. I must admit, I'm looking forward to feeling like my house is clean again!!! Of course it will probably take 2 weeks before it's actually clean, but I have all the time in the world now!
Of course I still take my 2 hour nap every day, but having more time for myself has been nice.
The kids are driving me up the wall as kids can do, but each week we'll have a "fun" day. This week I think we'll check out the Lee County Library and go swimming.
So I've survived a whole 2 days! LOL Hopefully I'll survive many more...

Then, I work for the hospice. Normally that's not as depressing for me as most people think, but today we talked about a child admitted to us with a brain stem tumor. Lovely.
So THEN I'm holding a Bible Study every Tuesday night with about 7 other people. It's a great time to fellowship and I'm trying to face my depression head on. Guess how many people showed up tonight?!?!?!?!!? ONE!
So today is rough and I want to just crawl in bed and pull the covers over my head and a giant tub of cookie dough. )-:
Thanks for listening.
