As I begin to feel normal again, I have to remind myself to be watchful. I tire out easily, and my head can still be tender when I’ve done a little more than I’m currently used to. But I’m continuing to push myself a little since I hope to return to work about November 1st. Today I put 30 minutes on the upright bike (in 10 minute increments). I got out of the house and got my haircut. My scar is hardly noticeable and the shaved patch is blended in. My hair cutter was impressed with my story. She asked if they put anything in while performing the operation. I laughed and said that they used fat to fill the gap, but I wasn’t sure if I should tell people that side of the story. (Referring to the potential “fathead” connotations.). She laughed and said I was right, I should leave that part out. I also grabbed a pizza and took a selfie to show my new doo.
Again, next step is Tuesday to meet my neurosurgeon for my release to return to work. I hope you all have a great weekend.
Love you all,
