This weekend I remained as vertical as possible. There has been some 90 degree business going on, but the main point is that I am resting. I have been in my comfy clothes reading, editing photos, browsing blogs, and watching movies. What I have NOT been doing is stressing out. It takes concerted effort, let me tell you! Here are my de-stressifying efforts in a nice pretty list:
- Not cooking
- Not cleaning
- Not shopping
- Not changing diapers
- Not going to church
- Not doing counseling
- Not doing make-up, hair or nails
- Not doing home-school
- Not stopping the two-year old from dumping cereal on the floor
- Not worrying about what the results of the brain scan will be when the are picked up this evening
Not that we are going to be able to decipher what the images mean on our own. The technician didn’t seem to flip out when he was doing the exam, so that should be a good sign. Of course he was out of the room or on the phone for about 7 of the 10 minutes that it took to be slid back and forth like a sticky conveyor belt at the grocery store. I actually didn’t feel a thing and was a bit disappointed that there were no red scanner lights moving over my face. There was some whirring noise that had an extraterrestrial quality about it. That was cool.
We will sit down with the neurologist on Wednesday so he can tell us what it all means. Until then, thank you for your prayers and notes of encouragement. I really am at peace. DaRonn and the kids are pitching in and the house looks better than it has in weeks.
