it's my birthday weekend, woohoo! josh is taking me to dinner tonight, can't wait to see where he takes me - i have a few restaurants in town i've been dying to try. saturday we have nothing planned which is quite exciting, and sunday evening my dad is taking us out. here's to enjoying the ripe ole' age of 25.
here are some post to enjoy, hope you have a great weekend!
the surgery yesterday went great. my surgeon wants to do one more angiogram in 6 months, if there are no more fistulas present in my brain then he says I should be cured. during the consult with my family (I was still in recovery) he told them he is very confident the fistulas are gone, but it never hurts to triple check, right? anyways, recovery is so much easier than last time, i still feel pretty loopy, and have headaches but it seems to be more manageable. I should be able to do something fun on Saturday for my birthday!
thanks again for all the support and prayers i couldn't have done it without everyone. also a special thanks to my understanding roommate beth, couldn't have asked for a better friend. and to my wonderful & patient boyfriend, I love you joshua.
tomorrow is my second round of brain surgery, exciting right? well in preparation two of my girlfriends took me to get a pedicure, and for an early birthday present! Thanks carly & beth for a great day :^)
went to visit my family at the compound (aka. grandma & kelly's house) last night where i received a full checkup from dr. aiden. which was great since i'm going in for a big surgery on tuesday, he said i am in great shape :^). the men enjoyed sunday night football (the picture below is not great but you get the picture, they are mesmerized).
josh and i spent part of our saturday at the mall. i have been eyeballing hunter boots for quite sometime, and now i finally have them :^) it was my birthday present to myself, and since i am going through my second brain surgery on tuesday i will more than likely be laid up on my birthday. but thought it would be nice treat myself to something early, right? me and some girlfriends are going to get a pedicure tomorrow for some pampering before my surgery, still deciding what color to try - i typically go for a nude or grey color, any suggestions?
josh tried on the beats by dr. dre headphones, which are very nice - i think he will put them on his Christmas list to santa this year. we also took a lovely drive around town, isn't it nice to not be in a rush. here are some fall foliage pictures, it's not quite this pretty here but hoping it will be soon, it would be a nice treat while i am recovering in bed all week!
i also had a friend teach me how to drive a stick shift this past week, so i made here this giant cookie. thanks kelly!!
