Ha! We love What About Bob...with a teenage boy in the house, Bill Murray rules!!! We watched You, Me and Dupree last night, very funny, sophomoric, and Jeff didn't fall asleep !!!
OK, update: no more nausea, headache is gone except for mild pain on left side (that was the jugular that was really messed up, and needed 2 telescoping stents to open, I just found out yesterday while we were on our walk....oh, by the way, hon... I actually have three stents....)
It was a good mother's day...because it was normal. Kid made us scrambled eggs and toast, we hung out, joked, went for a long walk with the dog, grilled chicken for dinner, watched a movie, laughed...simple things that I will never take for granted again. Jeff was present, aware, with us. Pretty amazing. Our son said, "Dad seems really good!"
Jeff's up early with me, and said he feels "awake"...this is no small feat. This is before coffee, provigil, supplements, the whole routine he's needed to deal with his fatigue and constant brain fog. We're both on our laptops, the sun is rising, coffee is brewing, just normal stuff most people don't think about twice. To me, it's miraculous.
He had a bit of leg pain last night, and it was sad to see the return of his "familiar friend", but we also went for a three mile walk less than a week after his surgery, so I'm not surprised. ( The lesion on his cervical spine is next to the new stents, and will probably be the one most bothered while his veins are healing.) It's the clarity of his mind that is the most obvious change. And this is so heartening.
