There is only a faint bit of purple and yellow left from my black eye.
Rhett says I HAVE TO go to the ER or doc about my head. I am too tired and exhausted to care right now.
This picture was taken as soon as I got home.
Today was the third morning this week to take Rhett to the lymphedema clinic. It was my first time to get wrapped up. It hurts 😦
You can see it has already slipped downward tonight.
Because of the peg-leg shape, it’s not as easy to wrap as Rhett’s leg. It has already formed ridges in the bandaging and bunched up. I have to keep it on until TUESDAY!!!! Want to take bets how long I last? Hint….I have cut two casts off after a couple of days.
The guy who wrapped me tried to put extra padding where the leg dramatically changes circumference. He was hoping that would alleviate wrinkling and drooping. No such luck. The ridges under the bandaging are painful 😦
On the way home from the hospital I had another major pain in my head, worse than the day before. It made my eyelid go to half mast and my voice change. I am trying to decide if these are like my cluster headaches. My left cheekbone still hurts and feels like it has pressure behind it. The head pains are between my jaw and temple. They are not quite like any head pains I have had before. I also have the back of the head/neck headaches that feel like an elephant kicked me.
I went through severe nausea with WNV…but ironically almost never barf. Since the head injury upchucking is happening with much less nausea involved.
I slept away most of today after getting home from the hospital. I feel a lot like when WNV was the worst. Light hurts. Noise hurts. I cannot taste. EVERYTHING hurts. My ears ring. And I continue to go from hot to goosebumps in seconds.
Reading today’s news was heartbreaking 😦 It made me remember even more why I unschooled my daughter! How could someone kill little kids????
So much contention and craziness in the world!
