Here we go again...

I felt great yesterday. I should have known, a little too great. I had slept well Sunday night and felt very rested on Monday morning. I took the boys bowling and felt really good. When we got home, I rested and still felt good. Last night, Dan had open gym at church, so I went with him and the boys. Samuel and I walked laps and I was still feeling good. Came home, got ready for bed and still was feeling good. I seriously thought I was going to make a turn around in the headache deptartment. Then I woke up this morning. Horrible headache, blurred vision and nausea. I don't know what is going on. I am not sure if the shunt is malfunctioning, if the tubing is clogged or what. I just hurt. So, going to take some meds again and see how it goes today. If it gets much worse, I will have to go to the ER.

Stilll lingering...

The headache is still lingering. I have been playing with my meds, but it looks like I am going to have to go back on the diamox, as much as I hate that. So, tomorrow...diamox to start my morning. At least I have phenergan to help with the nausea this time.
Samuel is spending the night with a friend and Noah is staying with his grandma. I am hoping to take some meds and just relax this evening. Samuel, Noah, and I are going bowling tomorrow. Then in a couple of weeks, we are taking the kids tubing at Mad River Mountain. Can't wait. Noah is wanting to try snowboarding. We'll see.
I am probably going to need to take Dan back to the dr on Tuesday morning. His knee is no better and actually, a bit worse. So, the dr will probably drain some of the fluid and then send him for an MRI. We are praying that nothing will need to be surgically repaired.
