|McKenzie & Mom serving the headaches away!!!|
It has been an emotional week for her, as we started to work on the things the doctor suggested for her. Basically the headache is always there. Sometimes it is not as painful, but then it spikes and gets bad. She also continues to deal with nausea at very random times. We have tried to fill her days with good things, such as going to the temple, writing missionaries, working on some projects for her mission, humanitarian projects and visiting with family and friends:) She tries to push through even when the headache gets bad. She has been sleeping much better this week and we are grateful for that. She has also been getting massages from our kind neighbor, Julie Britsch, and that has been helping with the soreness in her neck and shoulders.
In visiting with the doctor this week he said that as long as the headache is not getting worse, but staying the same, that he wants her to continue to do the same things. (good sleep, exercise, massage. taking the Topimax). He feels that we need to give the Topimax more time to work. It is supposed to help prevent the headaches. We are hopeful that it will take effect soon.
Thanks again for all your love and support!
