You know, I posted days ago, but I have no idea where it went! My apologies to you all. I have been doing wonderfully and I am SOO thankful for all of you thoughts, prayers, and checking on me.
The procedure went well, though it was more than I thought. I wasn't really prepared for what happened, but it wasn't bad...I just had no idea what to expect. Anyway, my left side was blocked 80%. My right is blocked 70% and I don't know about the azygos or whatever it is yet. I am scheduled for the 30th to finish up.
Since the procedure, the first thing I noticed was my sight. The only real problem I had (so I thought) was double vision. I do still have that, but I can see clearer and colors are brighter. It was amazing to look around...and the sunset! Wow! I am not nearly as tired as I usually am. I can think clearer and remember stuff better now. I thought I would be super excited and want to fit the last 18 years into the next two weeks. But I didn't. I am actually enjoying the quiet in my head. I am relaxed and I just want to sit quietly and think clear thoughts. It's so wonderful. Even if I don't get any better than this, it is more than enough for me. I can read again and understand what I am reading. I can remember things and I don't have post-its all over the place. I used to staple notes to my purse so I didn't forget to do things in town before I went home from work. I don't do that now and I love it. I am in absolute awe at the fact that I am part of such a revolutionary process. I will try to keep up with you all and not leave you in the dust.
Oh, and I haven't had to refer to anything as "thingy" since the procedure either. I can remember what each "it" really is and call it by name. The only things I have called "thingy" are the things that I didn't know what they were anyway. Blessings!!!!
