I know. I’ve been bad at updating my blog lately. I’ll try to get better at it, however, there really hasn’t been all that much to write about. I spent a week at home after the surgery. I was bored, but couldn’t keep my mind focused on anything. For the past week, I was working, but dizziness had set in. I’ve tried to figure out a way to explain it. One explanation is that it feels the same way as when you first get out of a bouncy fun house and the world is moving even if you aren’t. Another explanation is that it is similar to having “the spins” only without being drunk. Finally, by Thursday I decided that if this is how it is going to be, I will just have to learn to live with it. It was kind of like the world moved like waves in the ocean anytime I moved. A bit disorienting, but I could get along. At least I wasn’t nauseous.
Well, once I’d resigned to living my life feeling like I’m on a boat, it started getting better. Today I cleaned and took the dogs to the park, and washed them (which is why I had to clean after. ;-) ). I feel great. Tired from all the work, since I haven’t done diddly for weeks now, but good. Dogs are tired too. Dog tired.
I’ve noticed that I can hear more now. I just plugged in my headphones and I already feel like my hearing is better than it was before the surgery. I think things are healing and I think it is all going to work out. I still have a lot of ringing in my ears, but it is getting better too. I have a hearing test at the beginning of February. Cross your fingers for me!
