Can you believe how fast 4 weeks have gone by!!! I couldn't be happier with how everything is turning out, I just hope it stays this way. I'm scared one day I will wake up, and she will have headaches or ear pains again. But as much as I do know this wasn't a "cure" .... I think she is going to be fine!
So, Why am I so finicky over her incision /scar. You know a lot of "Zipperheads" (that is a nickname a lot of chiarians call themselves, because of this scar)... are proud of it, because they have gone through so much. And I agree! I am VERY proud of Kaylie for being so strong. BUT... she is a girl, and at that a girly, girl. So if I can take care of her incision/scar to the fullest, to make sure it heals nice, and not as noticeable... I will. I don't want her being 15 or 16, wearing her hair pulled up for a special occasion, and being so self conscious of it. If I can help in that process, I will. I want her to be proud, but also feel good about everything!
On other notes... She is still doing well physically, with her recovery. I think she will be going back to school at the 6 week point. She is ready, I think she is starting to get a little stir crazy around here.
I have had a little more time on my hands right now.... and I can feel that my thought process has started to full on worry about Mason. I try to keep telling myself to wait for the next MRI. But its hard not to worry. least I know we have a great doctor working with us.
The Conquer Chiari Walk Across America is a month away!!! Its Sept. 22nd in Tulsa, Ok. I was asked to speak at it, along with a couple other people. I'm really excited. Also, I am holding OKC's first Chiari support meeting Sept. 5th. There is one sometimes in Tulsa... but there are a lot of Chiarians near the OKC area. I think we will have a good turn out, and I'm excited to turn this into something big!
I also need to take the time to continue to say "Thank You" to all of our supporters! The Love, Prayers, Support... everything means so much to us. We couldn't be doing it without everyone. ....Thank You!
