They Didn't Ask Me

T+5 Days (Thursday)

Now we're in business.

Both the OT and PT therapists came this afternoon -- they actually overlapped a bit during their evals, which is what I would have scheduled -- so this is good. The OT therapist was one I had actually used at the Fuller Street facility a couple of times, so she was already familiar with my history. Tomorrow a home health aide will help with some stuff. Next week I'll have one OT and three PT visits, and then we'll see from there.

We had hoped to go see Gravity in 3D this weekend, but will try to wait another week. And if I miss it, I miss it. Two to four weeks. I'm betting on three, since I didn't have any active therapy this week.

Once I get some more strength and endurance, and do some more practice with the evil stairs, and can get into the Blazer and drive, then I can be moved to outpatient. And be free, for some values of free.

As usual, progress takes small steps. And since I didn't have my therapy evals until today, I have had a chance to learn how to do the basics around the house -- and show off what I can do. And point out what I can't do yet -- plus the things I am not physically capable of unless my compressed nerves regrow. So all in all, I am pleased with the results.

    Sigh. Twenty-three years into service at WMU and I'd hoped to avoid it altogether. But no. I can not. The inevitable Borgification is coming. And…

  • And Poof... the Power was Gone...

    I'm living on borrowed time. I suppose, in a sense, we all are. But right now I'm referring to OUEST, the university's Dell laptop in my office. It's…
