I Hope The Glue Holds....

Chad and I are gonna test that super glue they used to put my brains back in tonight! I hope it can hold up against Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction. It will be a new experience seeing Jane's Addiction sober... The first time I saw Jane's and the only time I've seen Nine was at the original Lollapalooza in 1991.... Come to think of it, that show may be the reason I have a hole in my head now.... Head Like a Hole.... lol.

Nine Inch Nails
Head Like a Hole
Hand That Feeds
Something I Can Never Have

Jane's Addiction
I Would For You
Ocean Size
(This is by far my favorite Jane song live. The first time I saw them it started raining right when Perry screams at the beginning.... memories...)

Hope the Water is Warm Enough to Swim...

We are going to the lake for a little much needed R&R. Be back Monday.

Do not have brain surgery and then attempt to walk into a Walmart. Freshly fondled brains can be easily tricked into thinking that this is, in fact, reality.

Today is Canyon's 16th birthday. What a great kid.

I'm losing track of how long I've been here

My physical status:
I am doing as well as can be expected: I finally blew that gasket that I've been warning the kids about and someone sawed open my skull and played with my brain for a few hours. I am walking and talking, so not complaining.
My mental status:
I feel extremely fortunate to be alive. I am going absolutely nuts in this hospital. I finally got moved out of ICU yesterday, so am now able to move around more and take showers. If all goes well I will be out of here by Friday at the latest.
Well, I've concentrated and looked at this screen for as long as I can, so I will leave you with a promise to update you more as my focus returns more and more!
Love you guys.

I Have an Awesome Family - How is it possible to have a great Mother's Day in ICU?

8 of the 10 kids showed up.
Here are some of the wonderful things written in my 2 foot X 3 foot homemade card.
Canyon started things off with some words of inspiration -
"....Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, Move on." -Henry Rollins -
"Your strength is an inspiration to us all to not be afraid of anything that life throws at us, and thank you for being the best mom in the world."
Big Brett is ever so more poetic "....get better, we need you."
Erin Lee says that '....I am the tears on her violin.' While Jack hopes the Doctors have 'fexed' me.

26 DAYS....

21 Days Post Bleed

There are a lot of things different in my life than 21 short days ago. Like how lucky I feel to be alive. How much I love my brother and husband. How freaked I am to be flying very soon. I think it is going to hurt my head and I am a huge big scardey cat. I am contemplating shaving my head.
