It's been exactly one week since I've written.
Funny, it feels like longer and also like less time has gone by. So much has happened in the short week.
Well the procedure went well, it was a very "wam bam thank you ma'm" kind of experience. Next time I will request that they have me count down before knocking me out or even starting the process. You know, just a little warning like: Hey, you're about to go unconscious in 3-2-1, darkness. Rather than me cracking jokes and suddenly I was powered down, no warning.
Maybe they just get a kick out of doing that, I'm sure it was funny to watch.
Anyway, the first few hours were the most challenging. It felt like I got stabbed and the knife was still in.
Then I remembered that I did basically get stabbed and this is what it feels like.
The first day was great overall-it wasn't as truly horrible as I expected, the second day my body decided that fluids shouldn't be in the system.
After 3 hours of not holding down anything, I was to weak to argue with my parents not to go to the ER.
Luckily, a bag of fluids in my arm and nausea medication + hours later and I was on my way home. Blood work checked out OK and things got better after that. They changed my medication and I haven't had a problem since. Let's hope it stays that way.
This entire healing experience has been quite a trip, I just don't how else to put it. There is something funny about this whole wounded warrior feeling I've been having. Nothing ever makes me slow down, this is so new, yet I know I will be better and stronger in the end. I've had to surrender a lot and accept the fact that I really did need my parents. I needed them more than I could have ever imagined before this last week.
They have been so good to me and so strong and nothing else could have been OK. I feel so blessed and lucky to have both of my parents still with me. So much of me has wrestled with being in Las Vegas (as usual) and now I am simply humbled and feel like I know nothing. Seriously, I don't know anything...I have so much to learn.
I have my follow up appointment this Friday. Looking forward to that..doctor said she'd have pictures! Should be interesting.
I really miss me a yoga class right now.
Oh and another thing.
Yesterday I had a powerful experience and that has completely reawakened my intentions with eating and food consciousness.
Today was the new moon in Gemini and I really felt the "new beginning" energy. I cleaned out my fridge and cooked some fresh veggies with salmon. I hope to continue with this energy, maybe THIS is my new yoga too :)
