I am somewhat embarrassed by this reaction. I was offered some meds when this all first happened and I declined them. But after all these months, it felt good to have the edge taken off. I am not sure that I will stay on this prescription, right now it is only to be used as needed. Since I call this blog "My Real Life" I thought I'd be real and share this with you all. Last night I had the nicest doctor and nurse at Zephyrhills Hospital. They were kind and understanding. He was also concerned with my neck and said he could feel tightness half way down my back. I was treated fast but with enough tests that it relieved my mind, for the most part. You do know I"m a closet hypochondriac. I do NOT read anything medical on the web. I know moms who can rattled off all kinds of medical stuff, no, not me! I stay as far away as I can or it just totally freaks me out! I really fight it, mostly by ignoring it LOL...
So after all of that, Selah had a great night with Jon LOL He got a good night's sleep. She has had a good day and did great during PT. Our nurse had her up most of the morning and early afternoon and she is sleeping so nicely and peacefully already. Two weeks from today the casts will be off:)
Here are some pictures of Sarah walking by pushing a chair in front of her. She seems to do better with leaning forward and walking although you can see she still puts her feet down oddly. The PT is puzzled by her. Sarah has the ability muscle wise to walk it would seem. She is quite fearLESS so it's not that either. She wants to and likes movement, she is never still. But yet she is not walking yet. I'm glad she is finally in therapy and hopefully she will start walking soon. I love one thing the PT said "If Sarah had been yours from the beginning she would be walking" how nice of a compliment that was to me. I am very commited to see her achieve that:)
So please pray for Selah and for me too. I am so thankful for all the messages and emails I get from so many saying they are praying! It really means so much to my heart:)
