I took my first official outing yesterday to see my daughter play in a concert at her school. She played so well. My head felt really great and as close to normal as it has felt in a long time when I listened to the 6th and 7th graders play the clarinet and piano. Something about the sound really pierced through the haze.
After the concert we stopped by Barnes and Noble and picked up a copy of April Parenting Magazine. On page 45 you can see Lil Sis in me in a Motts Ad and on Pg. 90 you can see us modeling for a story on Finances. Lil Sis' body language in the money story is SO her. I love it.
I haven't had a chance to scan it in, so go check it out the next time you see it, it's ParenTING not Parents.
Today I am feeling a little more like normal. It is really hard to force myself out of bed in the morning, but once I wake up I feel pretty good. I think the medicine slowing my brain waves down makes it harder for me to get them going in the morning. Yesterday after I had my Diet Coke at lunch I was doing much better, so I might try and have it a little earlier this morning.
Yesterday at school a lot of Big Sis' classmates wanted to know what happened to my face, so to answer your question, it's still looking pretty beat up. There is a quarter-size purple spot that seems to be slowly falling lower and lower. It started right under my eye and now it's near my cheekbone. I will be most interested to see just where that goes.
I am very thrilled to report that I have an appointment with a specialist on the 24th. I am hoping to get a lot of answers to my burning questions about my condition and my future. Thanks for all your support, thoughts and prayers.
