well i weighed in at 149 and in December i weighed 183. at the point that i was eating from a tube i was 140. crazy how much i lost. my legs were so thin it was weird. slowly building muscle again. and moving around. physical therapist is really good. he even does things for my arm. Monday we get occupational therapist for the arm. it moves but no typing and such. i can open my fingers. don said in December i couldn’t move my left arm, i just kept working with it. that would have sucked .i didn’t have to do any scans the last two weeks. but now i have a heart monitor for a month. no one knows for sure why i had the brain bleed. i do have to do a ct scan to make sure i don’t have pneumonia. i did in December .i get to do it here. we see a doctor here Wednesday. my life is now doctors. then on Friday it is the dentist. getting all my teeth pulled and dentures. they hurt bad and don’t want eat. yes i am bad for not going to the dentist. few times that i did it hurt a lot. but instead of 5 years like the one periodontist said i kept them 20. i didn’t care for him. he was not nice. that’s going to cost. i will be glad to have teeth just not the pain at first. they even thought i had an immune system problem the doctor ruled it out. i think it was just high blood pressure .i am a mystery. i don’t remember anything in December. I guess they ran every test possible. i had back punctures for protein, i had heart scoped, etc. you wouldn’t believe the bills, but Tricare has done good. still difficult with don staying home with me. but i am glad he could.
help, we had to dig into hubby’s retirement. which was 15,000. he,s been off since january. therapy is helping. so glad we have insurance, about 700,000 in bills and a lot is paid. yay y
i got up a few times more. i couldnt stop laughing.the head injury makes me laugh and cry. i hate that.i have some medicine but dont want to take it all the time. i walked today without the cane. don stayed beside me. i think walking the pond and treadmill everyday really helps. as for the hand its slow but i can slowly empty it. i i cant completely lift it yet.you never realize how much you need both hands.who would have ever thought id become a lefty.but walking without the cane will help me do stuff with the left eventually.
where have i been? last december i had a stroke. two vessels bled in my head. my right side was lost.hospital for month. then to a rehab for another month. they got me walkingwith a cane.but no right side. i came home and had home health nurses teach speech and physical stuff.now we are on our own. my hubby hasnt worked since january. the daughter has helped so much.the sons have been great.of course one handed typing sucks.im getting stronger. myfingers are working better.i can close them. one more week of steriods thank goodness. plus a handful of supplements. two doctors appoinments in two weeks in kc. hope no mri. i can handle a ct scan but i hate closed spaces.i did get up on my own yesterday out of the chair. yay.
