9751-03 Hi everybody. So check this out. It's been five years to the week, meaning the past week, that I had my first bleed. I was gonna blog about it last week, but my friend here was on vacation and I can't type. So, since it was five years ago, let's review what I've been going through. Let's see: I had two brain operations, a trach to help me breathe, two stomach tubes to feed me, then they filet'd me to put a filter in over my main artery. That was for the blood clot that I had in my leg. And then, I had two spinal taps. Then there were the two comas I was in. Countless visits to the MRI. Countless visits to the CAT scan machine. I remembered the first time I went to the cat scan. I told the operator I didn't have a cat, but I do have a dog. He laughed nervously and shoved me into the machine. He was probably thinking, "Gee, I never heard that one before." Anyway, going back to what I've been going through: I had like seven visits to the emergency room. Three stays in Intensive Care. Oh yeah, I had an out of body experience. I had four seizures in one go. Then I had two other seizures. Countless other mini seizures. Overall, it's been a lot of fun, but I'm getting tired of this I'll tell you. I won't give up, but I'm getting tired of it.

This week I've been doing more water therapy, and I've been walking again. It's fun. I've been there before, but it helps a lot. I strongly recommend the water therapy. The other thing that's cool is I've been trying out different trikes. It's kind of ironic 'cause they put me on the track to try out different trikes. It's ironic because I used to run the mile at a four minute pace on the track. So, here I am on a bike on the track. Kind of weird.

My friend here has been coming over to try and hook up my TV to my computer. You know, so I can edit my film better. It's difficult to edit on the computer monitor. We almost have it together, but it just takes time. I'm almost done editing my Trip Across America. The shots look real good, I must say. It's gonna make a great book and a great show. Just takes time.

You know, my friend here read back what I've been going through, and I was focusing on the negative things. There have been a lot of positive things to come out of this, like my trip across america. My artwork. Getting to know my friends again. Although, I do miss my daughter. I got a new crazy dog, and I am getting better… slowly. As a matter of fact, this morning I got my eyes to line up. It was only for a brief period, but I did manage to do it. My hands also shake a little less. Overall things are getting better, and it does make me appreciate the finer things in life. It's a bit of a cliche to say this but it's true, you do appreciate the finer things in life. Anyway, I'm gonna end it here to go back to my blog you have to go through my website: I'm still working out the bugs, but everything is there. You can visit my other blog by going to this site as well. Have a good week. Love, B. Nice
