Hello everyone! It’s been a while since my last life update post so I thought I should write one and let you know what we’ve been up to lately.
Road to Recovery
If you’ve been keeping up with my Instagram, then you already know about my road to recovery from a concussion.
No, it didn’t happen while playing a sport or on some exciting expedition – it happened while I was asleep!
Tristan likes to climb into our bed in the middle of the night. He is a crazy sleeper. When he gets into our bed he likes to snuggle next to me. Did I already mention he does crazy things in his sleep?
I’m not sure how it happened but I was jolted out of a deep slumber due to a blow to my head!
It hurt so bad.
Tristan was sound asleep next to me like nothing happened. Did he hit me with his head? Foot? Elbow? I don’t know, but it hurt!
Immediately I got extremely nauseated, the pulsating pain in my head was nothing like I had ever felt before and I’ve bumped my head a few times in my life.
In shock, I just laid there with tears randomly coming out of my eyes! I tried to get out of bed and the room was spinning.
I just knew it had to be a concussion.
With doctors’ orders I spent a week on bed rest and very little to no activity that could stimulate my brain.
No TV, no computers, no phone, no reading – anything that could stop my brain from healing. I would get mentally and physically exhausted just by simply folding laundry!
Oh, Tristan is fine by the way. It must’ve been his elbow or a hard kick – who knows!
We’re Headed to the Beach
We’ve gone on little day trips over the last few months so it’s been a while since our last real vacation. We’re so excited to visit Myrtle Beach again this year in May!
This time we are going to check out the Hollywood Wax Museum, visit Ripley’s Aquarium again, and we will be staying at another awesome resort by Vacation Myrtle Beach.
Last year we stayed at Captain’s Quarters Resort which you can read about here.
Do you have kids of your own or little ones in your life who sleep crazy like Tristan? Have you ever gotten a concussion and how did it happen? Where are you traveling to next? Comment below and feel free to share this post with your friends!
Until next time, happy travels!
