I woke up at 5 to take meds. I tried to go back to sleep, but couldn’t turn off my brain. I was PISSED!!!!!!!! I have been through so much crap!
All day I thought about how the incompetence of doctors has wasted months of my life 😒 Wow! I went from what felt like imminent death to getting better in leaps and bounds in a matter of days.
No pictures from Friday. I was in a bit of a daze much of the day. My long unused muscles were tired. I hurt all over. We went to a party store and looked at costumes. The kids got theirs. Then we briefly went shopping. I was on the verge of tears the whole time. The store’s scooter was wicked painful for me to sit in.
Then I had my shrink appointment. At check-in, I was treated TOTALLY different with a working voice. My counselor was surprised to hear my real voice 😊 I enjoyed being able to talk unrestrained. He said some of the docs I have seen deserve to have a lawsuit against them. He considers what they did and didn’t do to me to be malpractice.
When I got home, I spent an hour yakking with people in the lobby of my apartment building. The best gossip of the day was about The Stomper. I don’t know what she did to the guy last night, but apparently lots of cops were here. Today a moving van showed up and her stuff was taken away. Too bad that didn’t happen last year! The guy had finally admitted to people that she mistreated him. The end soon came. Yes!
Heather and the kids came back. Fletcher put on his costume and went to see the manager. Joe was great with him and kept telling Fletcher how fun his costume was. Then we went outside and Fletcher showed the people out there how to flap the wings of his costume. An old guy gave both kids candy. A woman put a dollar in Fletcher’s bucket. I was very touched by the dollar. It would never have occurred to me to do something like that!
Soon, we all looked like Zombies. The last few days had worn us out. Heather and the kids went back to their hotel. Soon after 6 PM, I was in bed. I had totally soaking night sweats ALL night long. Then I woke up with the worst killer thigh cramps in years. I had to get out of bed and try to walk. I tried the most loved home remedy…pickle juice! Soon, the cramps were gone. Whew!
I took my meds and am doing the usual of drying off and waiting for pain to ebb and sleepiness to come back.
I am very, very grateful to be getting strength and stamina back, along with my voice! I am going to need to be mad for awhile, then get back to “normalcy”. I have been to hell and back with my MG. I never want to go there again!!!!!!!
