Back!August 25, 2008
Exactly four months later than my first surgery I’m back at “Cranius”. I’ve missed you all and from the many cards and other signs of attention I’m getting the impression that you missed me too! Please forgive me from not writing earlier: my condition didn’t (doesn’t) allow for it.
I’m currently at home and go to the RCA on most weekdays. My right foot and leg are almost back to normal whereas my arm is still painfull (“Frozen Shoulder”). The radiotherapy has been completed but as a result the skin of my skull has been infected. My energy is slowly returning (for example: to come to this point in this text I required a total time of 72 minutes – yes, your eyes do not betray you). I’m walking ok, writing (by hand) is limited still to copying parts of letters (in the way that you would learn this in the elementary school), speaking is going fairly well (limited “only” by an “uhhhh”-sound in case I can’t find a word which results in a problem in 50% of the time). The problems double vision and double hearing are no longer there but the problem of changed taste is still there.
I’m stuggling with regaining my energy, especially after I was struck by another seizure recently. This also limits the length of my posts. I have the intention write a post every week (yes I know that this will be a serious dent in my service level :0). So be it.
