On Thursday I go in to see my primary care doctor about continued shoulder issues (the OT thinks there may be an issue there) and schedule an MRI to look at the possible need for surgery. Friday afternoon I have my next post-op with the ENT (ear doctor) to see how I'm healing.
Tonight hubby will work on install a new over-the-range microwave as our old one, very inconveniently, decided to die just as I was trying to get into the kitchen more. Wednesday we will celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, meeting with a new PT that evening, after hubby gets home from work. Stroke is the hardest thing our marriage has ever endured! God's grace alone brings us to this date together. <3
I am using a cane and walking brace for my ankle. My OT says I should continue with single-handed typing for any kind of legal document or any time speed or accuracy is an issue. Otherwise I am to weight my left arm (helps me feel it more, my brain communicate with it, and reduces some uncontrolable movements) and forse movement out of my left hand and try to type with both hands no matter how slow and tedious or inaccurate. (Spellcheck and backspace are really my friends!) We may be modifying the keyboard by textturizing ssome keys soon.
This blog is therapy in and of itself, but I might not be posting as long or as often for a while, due to shoulder pain when I try to type with both hands.
Off to drink my applesauce with a straw now. (Speech therapy to strengtthen facial muscles.)
