I want to apologize for being MIA for the last few weeks. Some of you had emailed asking me if I was blogging anymore. Yes! I most definitely am. But I am recovering from a concussion.
No joke, I was helping my husband unload our van and I slipped on ice on our driveway. BAM! Head hit the concrete. I think I was out for a few seconds, I don’t really know. But I remember my ears ringing and my head feeling like it was going to explode. I didn’t want to go to the ER at first. 1.) ER visits are expensive! 2.) I genuinely thought I was fine. My head hurt but I figured a couple of ibuprofen and some rest would do the job. It’s just a knot. I was just out for a few seconds. It’s just a headache. I can say my ABCs. I’m fine.
It wasn’t until the next day that my husband made me go–I was confused, slurring my words, and not making any sense. I’ll have to take his word for it, because I don’t really remember. Turns out, I hit harder than I thought and had a severe concussion.
The last couple of weeks are kind of a blur. It’s like having an electrical short. Sometimes the lights are on and working, sometimes they flicker on and off, and sometimes they’re just off. That’s the best way I know how to describe it. Fortunately, the lights are staying on a lot more–the bump on my head has gone down, I can speak clearly, I’m remembering more everyday and am thinking more clearly. I’m told that some of the symptoms can last up to a year which absolutely blows my mind. I look at how often pro football players get concussions and are out on the field again the next week. That is CRAZY. These things are no joke.
Anyway, thank you for your emails and messages and I would definitely appreciate your continued thoughts and prayers!
