Andrew, I'm glad to hear your Mom is doing better already. The soreness should go away pretty quick. Probably just bruising and such from having the tube run through?

Just thought I would touch base with you all as I know it has been awhile since I wrote anything. Our internet provider was not working. Turns out they had an error where they had not charged us for internet services since Sept. 06! It was their error and they can cannot go back so it was $800 savings on our part. I guess we were not the only ones. Anyway, we are back online.

It has been 3 weeks now since my shunt surgery. Progress is slow even the pressure in my head is gone. I have been very very tired for weeks now. I just can't seem to feel awake. I slept till noon everyday and then still some in the afternoon. Yesterday was the first day I was awake for the whole afternoon. I am discouraged when I am so tired. I am not doing much of anything but eating and sitting around. It is going to probably be this way a bit yet as I take one month to come off the steroids. I need to come off them really slow so my adrenals glands hopefully will kick in themselves and my body functions normally. I am on steroids for another month with a decrease each week. My balance is different than before. I can move my head around much more freely but I still need a walker for feeling steady. My hair is starting to grow back some but I am still pretty funny looking. There is still dark bruising around my ear. I wear a cap all the time. My head gets sore if I lay on surgery side. I had problems with side aches a lot at first from the shunt tubing in my guts but I am getting used to that finally. You can pray that I wake up more. I feel like I am living in a fog and want to get on with life again.

Thank you for the update Andrew...I was just thinking about your mom and then I saw this. Give her a big hug from me and let her know we're still thinking/praying for her.
