sure has got my interested up and I am certainly going to see if I can get his recommended book, The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science
by Dr. Norman Doidge -from the library.
Here is the USA Amazon link if anyone else is interested.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/067003830X/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
I love the cover of the book- it reminds me of Dr. SeussÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Daisy Head Mayziehttp://www.amazon.com/Daisy-Head-Mayzie-Classic-Seuss-Dr/dp/0679867120
I bought a new bike helmet, today, as my old helmet does not cover that ole craniotomy hole. I was worried that Ã¢â‚¬ËœifÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ I came off the bike and Ã¢â‚¬Å“got a ding on my old BellÃ¢â‚¬? (
) that my skull could crack at the stress point. (Making me a total crack up
Ã¢â‚¬â€œ ar ar
) IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m determined that I AM going to get back on my old mountain bike and ride the safe, but not too steep and too dangerous, Oregon trails.
After months of research this was the helmet I came up with that will actually cover the base of the skull and most importantly Ã¢â‚¬Å“the holeÃ¢â‚¬?. So I thought I would just share this Ã¢â‚¬â€œ in case anyone else feel they want to try bike riding, post craniotomy.http://www.bernunlimited.com/2007/berkeley.html
Although the Ã¢â‚¬ËœbernÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ website says 99.99- I actually only paid 14.99 for it at REI from the 2007 clearance binÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ So- it is worth shopping around.
I doubt I will be yelling out as I did in my youth, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Look Dad- no hands!Ã¢â‚¬?
Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ but hey I AM going to ride again. MMM I wonder if I can ride and chew gun and the same time. I am determined that Ã¢â‚¬Å“the brain can retrainÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬Â¦
What do you think- should I get a plastic flower and stick it to the top of my helmet? Boppie
- I hope you like that idea Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ it takes me back to this thread and makes me giggle. http://anausa.org/forum/index.php?topic=5110.0
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll keep you posted Ã¢â‚¬Â¦
BTW Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Has anyone heard from Cheza
recently? I had fish, chips, and a lovely spot of afternoon tea Ã¢â‚¬Â¦and was thinking about her. I would love and update.
Ta ta for now darlingsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
