Gosh Where Are We

Nothing new going on.  Why i haven't posted. The new doc ordered an MRI, done at the hospital there, and an EMG, nerve conduction tests.  The same driver took J down there last Thurs. for the MRI, and when they saw the first, went ahead and did a second one from another angle. These are on his neck.  When he told the doc about his swallowing, he checked all that out, and ordered these other tests.  The nerve one's appointment is way down the line on Oct. 21.  Unless they have a cancellation.

Well, night before last he fell. His right arm and leg wouldn't work, so his Dad and gf took him to the hospital and were there for hours,, of course. Ruled out a stroke and finally sent him home. His dad called me the next morning and i went over to his house, and when i saw his ankle, thot it might be broken, had to call an ambulance because he can't walk or crawl.  Hours again, just a bad sprain. In the meantime, the ER doc did talk to the Austin doc's nurse, (he's in surgery on Fri) and she said to get everything put on a disk and get to his office for him to review.  My dotter sent it to be delivered on Mon. So that's where we are.

I talked to him this morning and he's a little better. Had used my walker with the wheels and seat, (i don't use it) to get himself to the bathroom. Very carefully.  His leg is still numb from the knee down, and his arm won't work but his hand would grip today. It has swelling on the back of his neck, and i think it's pinching the nerves there.  As it goes down, i think the arm will get better.

He was also starving, and ibupropin has helped with the pain.

I was so tired i was barely able to drive home, did go by and pick up a milkshake. Sat in my chair most of the remainder of the day, quit a movie with 15 minutes left and went to bed and slept good last night. Feel normal today. Even went to the library and got 2 books, almost finished with my last one.

Hey, it's cold! I'm wearing a jacket and just turned on some heat. WOOOHOOOOO.  LOVE IT.

Now i'm needing a nap...My breakfast is putting me down. lol.

Yall tc and
