Everyone's been asking, so...
Two weeks and a day now since the "Midsummer Night's Hurt".
Still considerable head pain, eye aches, dizziness. Some days, it's really been rugged. Accomplished a very abbreviated short walk several mornings ago. It's still mostly couch, eat, tub, couch. Keeping reading/typing to a minimum, in light of aforementioned pains and difficulties. Can't tax the eyes.
The good news: Exterior wounds, bruises, and raccoon eyes are healing. Finally picked up a guitar this morning, an electric, not plugged in, to keep volume low. Can't tax the ears, but gotta notate the ideas. Mom, dad, family, and really everyone out there... have been superstars.
The rest of the comeback could figure to be a slow, methodical slog. Dying to get back to being a productive member of society, but there's no way to put a timetable on that, and assumptions must be kept low when you're dealing with a fractured skull. Can't tax the fractured skull: I'd like to show up in good shape for scheduled cat-scan & neurosurgeon visits later this week.
So, a special message to everyone out there: When you sing, play, perform, surf, sail, write, create, shred, whatever... please push it up to 11 for me, and I will smile for you.
I will now return to the simple pleasures of cinnamon raisin toast with butter. Really, really digging that. MH
