Being able to type one and a half handed is better than one-handed, LOL! I can actually rest my left arm on the laptop now and move just my hand as needed. Mobility has been improving too. Bruises have healed, aches and pains have reduced considerably, and only get pop pain up after exercising which I have been given and are allowed to do. What I also had was my first outpatient PT appointments last week. Went very well. Will be at them twice a week for 30 weeks. That seems like a long time but having a myopathy adds just a bit of a challenge. Plus my insurance allows me 60 visits a year, and since I have met my deductible for the year, they are covered 100%. Also no more Home Health as of the Friday before last, yay! We also stopped the nurses, or as I had been calling them, grannysitters! I had three different ladies help me over the 6 weeks, all were so helpful and allowed me to continue resting, and healing, instead of straining it trying to keep up with things myself.
Last week I got to go to the fair and watch my granddaughter show her goats. She did excellent as always. She received Grand Champion and Grand Champion Reserved for Breed with her two baby girls. Plus she got purple for their momma's! She didn't do as well in her showmanship, getting the first blue, but understood where she slipped up. Lesson learned!
He looks like such a pro!
That was the extent of my time at the fair this year. I didn't even get to the other exhibits. I am so stubborn to use my chair in town. It's one thing for the races, amusement parks and such, but to get around town, I would prefer to try and walk it. Only since my accident, has it been difficult. Hoping the strain will pass with therapy as we continue to work out those muscles again.
Just another week of Our Journey Through LIFE. Thanks for stopping by.
