Thank you for your kind prayers. We are waiting on more results, but Daddy did well today at the hospital. Ernie is with Mommy 🙌. Please also pray for strength and grace for Mommy. She’s dealt with a lot. But as she points out, “We are professionals.”
Also, I never sent an update about myself bc it’s been kinda…rough… I had some sudden L ear hearing loss in q4 2018 and at the same time my balance got worse, dizziness, nausea, etc. plus I’ve got 3 different kinds of interfering noise in my ear. It’s been a tough adjustment and it’s ongoing. It messed up my gait even more, whereas I had admitted it broke down in Summer 2018 and had just made some great gains. I messed up my L hip again, but after being medically evasive and giving my people a hard time for two months, I finally saw the ortho and got a proper script for rehab.
So the WHOLE TIME I was getting the full work up for my hearing, Daddy was just making these faces like, 😞😒😑 bc he is a hilarious and fierce advocate and he was unamused that these symptoms just appeared 7.5 years post injury. But the images reveal no cause for alarm and no good reason why this happened.
I have a new hearing aid, a lovely Audiologist, and the task of continuing to adjust for new factors. When I first woke up I learned to adjust for ABCDE. Now it’s ABCDE + XYZ. Frankly stated, I see and hear things that are not there. This is not new, but it hasn’t been this bad or scary in a while. But the WONDERFUL thing is that the Lord gave me an exceptionally skilled and compassionate group of professionals to help me, and to keep me accountable even when I just want to pretend nothing is happening.
The other wonderful thing is that although things change, He is faithful. I’m not just saying that bc it’s a phrase in common usage 😑😑😑😑. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to really think about that. I wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true. And FYI He is more than faithful – there are so many other things to be said, but not right now,
