As if having my back and neck issues hadn’t killed my summer enough, my grandmothers pacemaker has decided to die. Well, not completely yet. In a matter of days it went from being good for 4 months to it’s going to die in one month. Then of course she has to wait and get it changed, but her doctor is going to be on vacation. Thankfully she can go somewhere else and get it done sooner since by the time her doctor could do it would leave her 1 week before it would die completely. Did I add she absolutely needs it to live because she has no an node? So for now, I’m staying her. I’ve watered and weeded her garden while she sat in the shade and watched me. Cut her hair. Worked on her crafts for her churches craft fair. And there’s more to come. I can see why she’s tired all the time, she’s always doing something.
Day #3 of physical therapy is complete. My neck and shoulder muscles are still tight, but I’m slowly seeing improvements.
I’ve been MIA for the last month dealing with some health things. What started as allergies led to severe muscle pain, then a suspected ear infection turned into taking medication I had a bad reaction to for an ear infection that wasn’t actually an ear infection. It’s really tmj issues that are caused from some spine issues. Basically, I’m a mess, but I have finished a week of physical therapy with at least another month to go. Today and yesterday were the first days in a month that I didn’t have a headache all day and I’ve been able to sleep all night without waking up. I still get a pain here and there and my jaw gets a little tingling if I lay a certain way, but it’s all so manageable now. Of course my plans have all changed since I have physical therapy every week, but I’ll survive.
