Journaling Journey

Entry 3

33A4EF46-B516-403F-A587-AC8878CF614DToday went well. Kiddo is feeling headache/migraine pain relief despite her head hurting from the nerve block shots. She still has lumps in her head from them, but is able to handle this pain because it is different from the migraine she had for so long.

Her sinuses still hurt, but she can not completely figure out if it is an infection or if it is allergy related. It is just so hard for her to identify. The only thing she can figure out for sure is that it hurts.

It took me a while to get my day started because it has been one of those feeling exhausted kind of days. Once I got myself going, we left the house to run a business errand and took a drive to into the country. She was hoping to get a few fall pictures, but the location we were going to go to appeared to have a big party so we had to come up with a plan b and that was a longer drive to a different location. By now dusk was setting in with a quickness and daylight was not going to be our friend for much longer.

32E350C5-7E23-4828-90C5-B3151CD30899Where we decided to go, we had to leave the car by the side of the road, or in our case a dirt road path, and walk a little way into the woods. It was a wee bit creepy because this time of the year means we had to be on the look out for the lions and tigers and bears, oh my. Okay, maybe not the lions and tigers, but bears, and I forgot until we heard a gun shot, that we needed to be cautious of hunters because it is hunting season, so this was not a good time of day to be in the woods.

We survived though. I was really happy to get back to my Jeep, our place of safety again. She enjoyed being able to get out of the house to do something other than going to a doctor appointment or going to work. It was a pleasant few hours to decompress before she jumps back into trying to catch up on her college classes.

Our day has come to an end and we are going to bed with the hopes of going to church in the morning. This makes me nervous because church is a huge trigger for her. We attend a contemporary service which means loud music with a live band and lots of colored lights on display. This does not bid well for her sensitive head. Tomorrow is a day that right now we are plannng to go to church, but if she wakes up in the morning and has any indication of a headache, we will have to wait another week because her head is too sensitive at the moment. It will take nothing for her migraine to come back.

I am done for the day and ready to go to sleep. Good night faithful followers and prayer warriors. Thank you for following our personal journey.
