I’M SO FRUSTRATED! I’m three weeks post surgery/food poisoning and I am still nowhere nearer to being my old self. What is so frustrating is how different I feel from day to day. And the area of concern is my stomach. For instance, last night we had made plans to grab dinner and a performance of “Young Frankenstein” with my neurosurgeon, Dr. Mike Gorum and his beautiful wife, Tammy. Right up until the appointed time we were supposed to meet, I didn’t know if I was going to make it.
The thought of food was making me sick and it didn’t help matters that there was a guy who we were seated next to who had just pulled his jacket out of a 100 pounds of mothballs. During this latest recovery, my sense of smell has been the most likely sense to pull my vomit trigger. Last night it was mothballs. Over the past few weeks colognes, dogs, casseroles, cpap tubes have had me wretching. I never know where it is coming from.
I’m so glad I got through dinner and that show last night. We had a nice time talking over dinner and “Young Frankenstein” at RiverCenter was just so good! I am so thankful for our RiverCenter. It would be spectacular in New York City. But, it is really a show stopper in Columbus, Georgia.
Jill has helped me organize my case files and we’re getting ready to shop around for a renal cell carcinoma specialist to take our case to discuss next steps. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes.
For now, I’m trying to get into the office a little each day and with physical therapy starting tomorrow, I should be getting stronger each day (if they don’t kill me).
Sorry for the delay in getting out this post. My head just hasn’t been in it. I’ll try to do better.
