Sarah 2 weeks

Happy 2 Week Zipperversary Sarah!

 

I can't believe two weeks ago I was in the OR getting unzipped!  Time flies!  I have nothing to compare it to, but I think for someone who just had brain surgery and her neck fused....I think I'm doing pretty darn fantastic!!  Pain is minimal and the worst part is that I'm ansy. I'm ready to get back to my normal routine...however, my body isn't.

Today Connor Conquers Chiari

It's amazing how you've never heard of a disease, like Chiari Malformation,  and then suddenly two members of our community are battling it.  Kind of like buying a car....you've never seen one then it appears everyone has one.  As I write this, I can't believe it was 12 days ago that I underwent a 10 1/2 hour procedure to conquer my own battle with chiari.

Recovery is long, but I'm doing really good.  My energy has returned.   My pressure headaches are gone.  Only 'bad' things I'm dealing with are: numb tongue, numb right thumb, hiccups whenever I eat or drink & very painful hips (associated with EDS).

Comedy Night With Krazy Jake To Benefit Connor’s Fight With Chiari

I'm sure you've seen me use the term 'chiari' during the past year.  If not, let me briefly tell you about it.  Chiari Malformation (pronounced: Key R ee) ...in layman's terms...is when your brain falls below your skull into your spinal column.  To say it hurts is an understatement.  I've birthed 4 children without pain meds...that 'hurt'.  Chiari is 10 steps above 'hurt'.  I know, because, I have chiari and so does my fellow Chiari Warrior, Connor.

A lot of people have taken their time to research Chiari Malformation.  I wanted to share my MRI image that shows some of what I'm is dealing with.  This is only one picture and a very small part of the story.  But it shows you that my headaches are legit.

Find Out Why Sarah Colored Her Hair PURPLE #CHIARIWARRIOR

Yup, I colored my hair...PURPLE!  No regrets.  It's a statement for sure.  But it's just hair...right?  The color purple has a whole new meaning to me.  So, before I take on a surgery that will change my life, I wanted to face it head on and do something daring.

Three Weeks From Surgery And Sarah’s Having A Mid-Life Crisis

Today, I am three weeks away from getting my head screwed on straight.  February 17th is the day I will conquer chiari.  But, the anticipation is driving me crazy.  I want it over with, already, and want to be on the other side of it recovering.  Knowing that I'm having such a risky surgery, it has me thinking about 'life' and how I've never really done anything truly 'out there'.

Surgery is 26 days away.  I am trying to get my stuff together so that recovery will go as smooth as possible.  This weekend, I'm going to prepare meals to freeze.  I figure this is one less thing my husband will have to do.  My recovery is going to be a long journey and with 6 kids, I don't want him to get overwhelmed.
