Hi! Please pray (1) that Daddy’s Angiogram May 9 will go smoothly and he will recover quickly- the Surgeon will decide on how to address the aneurysms after this procedure . (2) The right people (I have a First Choice) to help me. My hip, back , and breathing got messed up – probably a result of all this extra stress and physical strain since March, concurrent with the hearing loss and everything that happened. I received STRONG DIRECTION from my Neuro after she saw my gait Wednesday that although David and Randy have been supporting me well, I must take formal action. 😑 Thanks, Ning
Ps. In case I forgot to tell you, in q418 I experienced sudden hearing loss with a relentless heartbeat sound and multiple other constant interfering noises in my L ear. Extensive imaging showed zero structural cause for alarm. At the same time I experienced balance loss, gait regression, pain, more sensitivity to sound, and other Stuff involved in adjusting to this new state. I was having rather a tough time of it, but thank the Lord I got a fabulous hearing aid and my people coached me through how to grapple with life through these mobility disturbances. However, I was formally diagnosed with a retorn L hip labrum two days before Daddy’s event. I made the decision to leave physical Therapy and put the past 5 years of training into practice (house activities take a ton of physicality for me) and my people promised to help me fix the damage after I did what I needed to do for my family. I think now might be that time.
Thank God my body hasn’t protested more than this, and that Daddy’s event distracted me enough to really force the issue and help me adjust (gait, balance and nausea are better) but mostly that Daddy is doing well 💗💗.
Thank you for your prayers and for the lovely friends who have driven me to necessary appointments.
This is what happened after my Neuro saw me walk:
Doc: 😑 So what do you want to do about it?
Me: is nothing an option?
Doc: Don’t look at me like that.
Me: I’m not looking at you!!! I’m obviously looking away evasively.
Doc: so call me after you’ve done this a while to tell me how you feel.
Me: WAIT – this isn’t a one and done deal? (Internal: I’m not calling you.)
Me to MA taking notes: Dude, are you writing this down? Please don’t write that down. 🤣🤣🤣
Doc: if you let it lock up more you will lose ROM and it will be harder to fix later. Your neck and shoulders are tighter than usual (which is saying something). Weekly Medical massage for a month. Also, you will eventually need to work on the tears in your hip. 😑
Me: I am allergic to everyone.
Doc: you need to do something about this.
So then I ruminated for 10 minutes in the waiting room on whether or not she really meant it. I admit that since she wrote it on the order, she might’ve meant it. Also, the MA wrote it down. So she’s going to remember.
Don’t worry. I will follow orders. Waiting to hear back from the A-Team to see if her schedule permits 💗🙏. If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, the A Team = the ONE AND ONLY Gen 🙌🙌🙌
