Stunt Woman Dayna Grant - Emergency Brain Surgery

Update from Dayna

  20 August 2021

I am week 5 after brain surgery and doing extremely well thanks to everyone’s help and support 🙏🏾

I had an appointment with my surgeon today and I am cleared to start doing basic stuff again, only cause I’m experienced on an amazing horse he has given me the ok to go ahead to get on my horse ⭐️

This has made me extremely happy 😃

My day is jam pack filled with rehab.

9am morning stretch yoga and cold pressed juices start for the day and vitamins

10am neurophysio brain training

11am brain break

12pm hang with my horses

1pm oxygen therapy chamber for 1 hour 45min and meditation.

3pm hang out with my son

4pm 2nd neurophysio brain training

5pm brain break

6pm yoga strength session

7pm dinner and shower etc

8:30 bedtime 😴

I am feeling really good and I think I am starting to get a small amount of sight back in my left eye.

I try to keep my eye patch off but sometimes I need it on to give my eye a break (it’s trying really hard) “you can do it left eye” 😂

Every day I feel an improvement and I’m gonna come back better than before any of this.

I have found meditation and a huge appreciation for life and the amazing people in this world….. and what is truly important to me.

I have turned a negative into a positive and for the first time in I don’t know how long I have been able to focus on my health.

So I want to thank you all for following me on my journey, still a way to go but it’s a happy journey thanks to you all.

Oh yeah and my surgeon couldn’t believe I haven’t been on medication for the past month, he said I was the picture perfect patient 😂

Stunt School Update:

I try my hardest to make it along to see everyones happy faces at the workshops, sometimes it will take a week of rehab (after) to be able to make it back again to see everyone….. but it’s worth it 🙏🏾

January 2022 is the next time I’m allowed to drive a car again in public.

I have an eye specialist appointment soon but due to covid restrictions that probably won’t happen.

I owe it all to nutrition, positivity and the oxygen chamber and I wouldn’t have had any of this without you all 🙏🏾🙏🏾♥️♥️

After your workshop with us in waipapa, I really wanted to join your school. I have a new hip and feel I was neglecting my health for so long. Time to get back on the horse aye. Thankyou xyz. Willi

    Oh Dayna, I am so glad you are recovering well. You are an amazing woman. All your stunts! You are an inspiration to me as I battle stage 4 cancer. Maybe I should add a "brain break" to my schedule too.... But you know, no matter what, we should all be grateful to what we are given, learn from it, move on from it, and love all these people that are put into your life if you know them or not! My blessings to you, and keep getting stronger.

    Great to hear you're back in the saddle. The true value in life comes down to just a handful of things, sounds like you've incorporated them into a solid routine.

    Go lefty

    So, so happy to hear you are doing well. Being able to get back to doing what you love is awesome. I could come out and help you with stunts. My speciality is "Standing on one foot/toe while reaching on top of the refrigerator to get my cat that is squished against the wall because we have to go to the vet" I feel I am very good at this. 😁😁 Take care, be well, and enjoy life!
