I’m back in my apartment just for a couple of hours to renew my acquaintance with my computer and to thank all of you for your cards, calls and good wishes. Slowly, ever so slowly, I’m making progress so that one of these days I can live independently again. All I can say it that it has been a long, hard road to relearn all the things I once took for granted. The bottom line is that I had no idea that splitting open my chest would have anything to do with with my ability to walk, but I can assure you it did because it robbed me of what little strength I had and brought my lupus back to light.That has been a huge problem.
Rehab has gone very slowly, from my perspective but I am making headway. I need a walker to get around, but hope to get rid of it eventually.
Todd and Karen brought me to my apartment this afternoon and I just love it. It’s light, sunny and airy and very pleasant. Once I figure out how to get in and out of bed alone, I should be able to move back up here.That doesn’t sound like a difficult thing, but it is.Karen cleaned my refrigerator so the green stuff is gone. I can start over again one of these days.
Sorry this is so short with little information, but it is what it is . I’ll do better next time.
Todd is filling out my med appointment forms, which has been most helpful…and getting me to appointments in Wichita and Salina. Our trips to Wichita with the various doctors have revealed that the valve surgery went well, the pacemaker is functioning, I have blood thinners to welcome…and who knows what else. I just take it one day at a time.
Thanks again to all of you…I’m out of steam for now…Thanks for tuning in….
