I came home today. Four days in the hospital and a week in rehab. I'm very tired, but happy to be home. I graduated fro wheelchair to walker yesterday had a review from doctors and therapists, Passed cognitive and balance test and was sent home this afternoon. I am so thankful we figured out what triggered the seizure activity. and it is controlled! I cracked my skull about two weeks ago, slamming the door on our dodge van before I got myself totally inside. When the immovable force met that door something rocketed around. Any way I see my PCP tomorrow and my neurologist within a couple of weeks. Waiting for them to call me. One of my great pleasures of life is curtailed for awhile, (driving) But my God is sufficient.

I went to Bible study without Mom for the first time. We have another member of our very small group in a rehab hospital over in California right now! I came home and took a nap too. I think I'm still playing catch up from our hectic past couple of weeks too. I've only made it out of bed early enough to help get the kids out the door to school once all week.
I got a bit of vacuuming done this afternoon. I'm still not super steady on my feet and still can't do much more than one room at a time, but I was thinking back just to the first part of this year and how I simply did not have the balance to walk and push a machine like this AT ALL, and how today I can remember those emotions so vividly, yet cannot recreate a clear memory of the physical sensation of that particular limitation. Wow! Just wow!
