Wow! Spark people are the most faithful, encouraging people on the planet! I am overwhelmed by the love and support I have received. I thank every one of you for your prayers.
I'm still in a good bit of pain--like my heart is throbbing in my ear; but even worse is the myriad of weird noises I am hearing. Of course, that's part of the healing process, but boy, is it strange!
One minute I'm hearing a buzzing noise, then a metallic clack like you'd hear in a manufacturing plant, then a clock ticking, etc. Right in the middle of all that will be the usual tinnitus tone that I get--much like the old "this is a test, " tone on the tv. Thank goodness for medication or I think I'd go completely crazy between the pain, throbbing and the weird noises. Of course I can't hear anything that's rea l, such as conversation. LOL
I'm feeling so hopeful now that maybe this really WILL work! Imagine! I could have a somewhat normal life again after a year and a half of misery! God is so good to me--I know without a shadow of a doubt that he led me to this doctor and this hospital. If I had done this surgery locally, no doubt I would have been sent home afterward and possibly died in my sleep, due to the problems with the anestethesia. Thank the Lord for teaching hospitals, good doctors, and a dedicated nurse who made everyone within shouting distance check me out for the breathing issues.
Even with the pain, fatigue, etc., I feel so incredibly blessed and hopeful for the first time in a long while. My God is so good and I give Him the glory and praise He deserves!
Thanks again, my friends, for being my advocate with the Great Healer!
