What a day! 😳 I woke up to a call from Dr. R's office, asking me when I planned on coming in for my stitches. We roused ourselves and rushed in to discover that the plan was to remove all the glue holding my incision together and replace it with a row of stitches 😟 Ummmmmmm... I had 3 layers of glue after all the leaks, and I knew this wasn't going to be pleasant. Thankfully, the nerves in my skull are still numb from the surgery, so with a little lidocaine it hurt a lot less than it could have. Tugging, ripping, and pulling revealed my clean skin, which was sterilized, sutured, and then bandaged. πŸ‘ I have to come back in a week to get the stitches out, so we'll be extending the stay an extra day. Every day, someone will have to change my bandages, I'm on anti-biopics, a high dose of steroids, and of course to add insult to injury I developed a yeast infection, so I'll be tackling that as well. πŸ‘Ž It's the first day I can honestly say my head has felt like it's been through brain surgery, so I've napped and rested. Dr. R wants me on a super extreme low-sodium diet to help with the pressure in my head, so no more than 2g a day. I don't know how that's possible, but if it keeps my noggin in one piece it's totally worth it. πŸ’ͺπŸ‘‘πŸ™#chiarimalformation #zipperhead #brainsurgery #fightlikeagirl #chronicpain #chronicillness #lifeofaspoonie #spoonielife #spooniesisters #chroniccondition #hydrocephalus #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #pots #mylife #conquerchiari #chiaristrong #invisibleillness

THATS MY GIRL βœ”οΈ Raya has had brain surgery 4 times in her short life.. She's spent probably about half of her life in hospitals, she has #hydrocephalus , #epilepsy , #cvi , #scoliosis and #developmentdelay πŸ’œπŸ’™ doctors didn't know if she would make it, told me she would have no quality of life, pressed me to terminate my pregnancy.. But she came out fighting and has done every single day, she's fought hard for her place here on earth, she was just meant to be, just the way she is πŸ’— she's a blessing and I'm so grateful for her just the way she is πŸ’— #proudestmummy #iloveyou #mummysgirl

Looking through a journal I had lost and I found an entry where I felt like God had given me peace about Jolene's Craniosynostosis, with this verse written in it. It's so beautiful to look back on it (it was written 3/25) and think how much peace I have about choosing not to put her through another surgery + to see how healthy and beautiful she is now! Love the LordπŸ’• This is perfect timing as now we're tackling another fear as we found out she has developed stambismus (she's mildly going cross eyed) but I know the Lord will heal her from this and she will still be the most beautiful girl in the wold to me #blessed #craniokids #metopiccraniosynostosis #craniosynostosis #hydrocephalus #hydro #stambismus

Let's try this whole recovery thing again. Steroid, pain pill, anti-nausea, stool softener, multivitamin, magnesium, and sea iodine... Can I keep the pills down today?

Please stay down. It's been 24 hours since I've eaten. I'm tired of puking and being nauseous. At the ER they gave me huge amounts of anti-nausea drugs.

Finally got my stuff from Hydro Angels Over America yesterday! It was flown here from Texas, which I think is pretty cool, haha! :D I'm so excited to be able to spread hydrocephalus awareness with these few items (although I've been able to do this regardless ;) ) the shirt has one of my favourite quotes on it: "you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have" πŸ‘ŒπŸ’ͺ and the bracelet is awesome as well, because I, along with millions of others who also have hydrocephalus, am a hydro warrior, and I'm proud ☺️#piccollage #potd #selfie #hydroangels #hydrocephalus #hydrowarrior #awareness #sohappy #itcame #earlychristmasgift #yay #strength #favequote #iloveit #bracelet #brainsurgery #neurosurgery #hydroangelsoveramerica #haoa #texas #belieber

Chiari has taken so much out of my life, but I have to say I didn't know my purpose until I was diagnosed with this brain disorder and until I underwent all of my brain surgeries. Chiari has unraveled a world I could never have dreamt of, but now can't live without. No matter how difficult my path has been, I am so thankful to have this obstacle for it has been the beginning of a new life. You can't teach empathy. Empathy comes from personal struggle and as a future physician I am beyond blessed to have experienced living in and out of the hospital because I will now be able to closely relate to my patients. #chiari #chiarimalformation #futuredoctor #brainsurgery #invisibleillness #hydrocephalus
