I’m starting to feel better… like myself again.
I’m so scared to say this because it seems like anytime I do, something catastrophic happens, but I’m willing to risk my superstitions because I’m feeling BETTER than I have in years.
That’s not to say I’m cured or actually ‘better’, I will probably struggle with things for the rest of my life, but I’m learning new ways of doing things, accepting the things that are impossible, and pushing myself harder than I ever have before.
I’m almost done with round 2 of physical therapy at @abilitylab and I’m seeing HUGE improvements. I’m still using 1 lb weights, so don’t expect to see me becoming a weight lifter 😂 but it’s helping with functioning enormously.
I was completely discharged from my GI doctor. For the time being there are no issues, and hopefully the Botox I had injected in my esophagus will last a year or longer.
I have more follow up next month, CT scans to check on my stents, but that is something I do yearly and will do for the rest of my life.
I’m also down to only seeing my vascular neurologist/ stroke team every six months, and haven’t had any “stroke like” symptoms in a while. The artery is healing very nicely 😊.
All in all it’s been a few good weeks of appointments and I am looking forward to a summer filled with many less doctor visits
