IT is seven weeks today since my surgery. I still have PT, OT and speech therapy and have made great strides. My neurosurgeon gave me clearance to go back to work this Tuesday, half-days as tolerated. I think I would have gone postal if he didn't give me the O.K.... I can only sit so long. I still get tired very easily, get frustrated because when I type or write, it seems that my brain does not work in sync with my hands........ I get a sharp pain on the side of my head but I guess I am bound to. I have four steel plates now and have lost 23 lbs. because my right jaw muscles were cut and now my jaw seems to be frozen which we are working on... my meals consist of Ensure.... all of this is a small price for my life and I know that with time all will be back to normal, I will be on the beach this summer and all of this will be the past! We are the fortunate ones, we are here to talk about our annies and survival!!
