A few people contacted me about that "I'm well" message in yesterday's post.
"Don't you still have double vision and other visual problems?" they want to know. "Aren't you still having balance and other health problems?"
Answer: YES, I still have double vision and so many other complicating factors with my sight that I plan to pursue a new course of vision therapy in the near future (I definitely want to prevent more fractures from my unexpected falls!).
I continue to lose my balance without warning, and I struggle to see my monitor let alone a printed page in a book. Though I need to perform all of my physical therapy exercises daily so that I can prevent other problems, I persevere with that mantra I wrote at the end of my book.
How else am I coping with the remnants of my medical crisis? I correct typing mistakes and other errors (again and again) after I've "published" one of these blog posts, happy that I can correct my mistakes even though it's a s-l-o-www process.
At other times in my life I cry from frustration and the limitations I want to overcome. Then I refocus on what's going right, NOT on what's going kerflooey.
My neurosurgeon calls my recovery "Amazing."
Why the amazement? Because my medical team expected me to deteriorate further even after the tumor, then killing me, had been removed. It had caused extensive damage to basic structures. Surgery had unavoidably nicked me in dangerous places, but we knew going into the process that it was a sacrifice I was willing to endure so I could remain alive.
Read my book and find out.
medical professionals and for the rest of humanity.
