I've been bad.

I have not updated like I should have but to be fair my eyes have bee hurting so much and the instances of blurred vision and black out vision make it kind of hard to be on the computer let alone type.

The testing in Baltimore went like thy thought it would. DUH.ummm yeah!

I ran he gament on the pressure monitor from 5 all the way to 60/600. As Dr. W said there is no doubt that I have IIH. So what is the plan?

Well part of the plan involves the fact that I am sitting in Baltimore typing to you right know from a hotel room!!

Surgery is tomorrow at 1:30. I have to be there at 9:45. They will be placing a new VP shunt in. This time they will go in on the left side (the previous one was on the right)

I am really hoping that this works but at the same time I am going to be honest with myself in knowing that it may not. It could take care of all of the headaches, it could take care of only a few, it could take care of none.

But for now we will hope for the best.

I am sure the next update will be filled with lots of information.

Till then.....

Itching..for paint

I am watching way too much T.V. these days.

When your head hurts the television is just the natural thing to do as it is just about as mindless as it gets.

I tend to go through spells on what channels I get "stuck" on. For a while it was the Travel Channel, then Bravo and now it's HGTV.

Oh yes HGTV.

And now by watching it I am sooo itching to do something, anything to my own house. Mainly I really want to put a screened pouch onto our existing on. Um yeah...okay. Dreaming a little big at the moment but hey ya gotta dream.

So for now I think I will stick to painting. Probably not the greatest idea with head pain and low energy but when I am having a good day I do want to do something productive.

Even though Wes hates painting I did manage to drag him to Lowes to help me pick out some colors. For starters I plan on doing the girls bathroom then I want to tackle the kitchen.

Tonight I started the prep work on the girls bathroom so hopefully tomorrow will be a good day and I can get it painted. I will post picks when it is done.

For now I am going to kick back and watch some more HGTV and then head to bed and maybe dream of tile!!!
