I'm Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Miss me?!

Thanks to the hubby's excellent blogging - with timelines! - there's not a whole lot for me to add. Thank you bunny!

Today I woke up feeling pretty "normal". I got up and read on the couch until the hubby woke up, then took a bath which is my second favorite thing, next to Margot washing my hair (which I hope she does tonight - pretty please?). I got dressed in my now custom Sharpie shirt (a little off the back so my staples don't catch), put my contacts in, and plopped back on the couch.

And now, I present to you, my head...more specifically, the back of my head. (Please note how quickly my hair is growing back.) If these pictures give you the heebie jeebies, I'm sorry - I've had several requests for them though and I think they're kinda cool...there are 32 staples by the way...I'm a little sad that there weren't 33 :(

This was taken on the 4th about 48 hours after surgery...Dr. Oro was very pleased with how it looked. This is right after he removed the bandage. I wish you could see my hair style - it was literally pulled into a ponytail on the top of my head that fell to the left side. The rubber band? The bottom of a rubber glove. Styled by my favorite nurse the whole time I was in the hospital...I just can't remember her name because it was something unique and I was still groggy from anesthesia. She is a traveling nurse from NY and we talked about how pleasantly different people are in CO compared to our home states.

I'm having trouble uploading the rest of the photos to Blogger right now...I'll try again later.

YAY!!!! Glad you are getting back to your usual self (meaning back to blogging). Your picture of your head is gnarly... But kinda cool at the same time. I am glad you are doing better. Hope you have recieved all my texts and the picture. Can't wait till you are home and ready for a visit from Ellen Helen. I will bring many activities. Continue to relax and journey on your road of recovery. Love ya lots.


EHW. :)

You COULD always ask them to put in an extra staple, just for good measure. And yay for the nurse with the cool name who gave you a totally 80's hair style! XOXOXO

Looks like a bad hair day to me. Tell Bianka not to worry I got a staple gun in my tool box...I'll fix you up!!!

Wow, your photos sure put my photos to shame. They are so cool. I thought that they were going to shave your entire head. I was glad to see that it was only the back which can be easily camouflaged once the staples are removed.

That has to be one of the coolest set of photos I have ever seen. I had to show everybody I know. Glad to see you are back and feeling better.

The picture isn't gross at all. I think it's interesting. And I'm glad you're ok.

This is just my story of my experience with Chiari. Until I was diagnosed, I'd never heard of it, and I just want more people to be aware of it. I'm not a doctor, so don't quote me on any of this stuff - k? If you are looking for information about Chiari Malformation, a lot of the more informative posts are the older ones.
