I took my girl to Branson, MO last weekend. We made a long weekend of it and it was so wonderful for both of us to get away. It’s the first time since in 2 years. The coolest part is that we sat in my car a lot…enjoying each others company and the fact that we were somewhere other than home in bed. And laughing we laugh a lot! I’m so happy about healing and our progress.
Alex update: Alex is walking now on her own and while she’s still blind in her right eye she’s so very happy. We made it through this tough last year thank you everyone for your thoughts, wishes and prayers…. thankful for a glorious time with my girl.
Update on my back injury. I’m 85% healed. Hooray. I’m still wearing a back brace and I’m able to sit for longer than one hour so that’s exciting. I have a stand up desk at work so yay for that too. My heart is full and I’m so blessed and thankful! Much love and big hugs to you! ~ღ~
Waiting, waiting waiting for this procedure and that test. By the end day she was worn out. Waiting for Neurology specialist, Dr. Fealey a God send, he was to figure out and put together a plan for healing for my girl.
Dr Fealey’s findings; he said the optic nerve is still viable and conducting and receiving impulses. Yay Yesterday’s MRI will be helpful with the gamma/steroid IV infusion are used to hopefully restore her sight. He said she isn’t seeing now. But feels hopeful that maybe in 1 to 2 years her sight will come back, he cannot say how much will recover but he’s hopeful. To this mom it makes me happy. As for her mobility weakness he thinks it will come back with time.
This is the scooter I rented Alex. 😄
This morning I walked Alex’s wheelchair off at the Mayo. On my way I realized the Starbucks is open on Sunday. Most everything shuts down on the weekend including the Mayo. I’m thankful for coffee [Starbucks] and wheelchairs, both helped me make it through.
Well we made it. I couldn’t sleep so I’ve been exploring downtown Minnesota. The coolest part is we are staying at the Doubletree and there is a skyway to the Mayo Clinic.
I wasn’t going to post but I decided that I needed to share. I had forgotten how much I rely on my WP friends for mind-heart support. Like one big therapy group I mean that in a good way.
BB is still sound asleep. I’m thankful. Yesterday’s trip wore her out. I plan to walk across that skywalk and find out what the Mayo can do for us @6:45am tomorrow, that’s when she checks in. Wish me luck. Rough day yesterday BB. 😇
