I was moved to rehab this morning around 8 am, and am excited. Two weeks ago I was in the ICU, just last week I was allowed to eat nectar thick liquids and solids. Today I passed my last swallow test and now I'm allowed to have thin liquids and ice creams. I feel like I'm making a lot of progress, each day I have a little bit of improvements and it's a good thing. :) My walking is getting better everyday too!
The doctors are still unsure of what exactly is wrong with me, so they can't rule anything out. The only way they can is if they do a biopsy (which the doctors don't want to do because it can leave me paralyzed). So according to the doctors I'm a medical mystery. The last MRI I had showed a slight improvement to the second one, which is good. I have another MRI in a about a week, and a VEP test today.
I want to personally thank everyone for helping out at the car washes, praying for me, keeping me in your thoughts, and just all of the positive energy. It's because of you guys that I'm making such great progress. Thank you guys for everything. I'm not just fighting for myself or my family and friends I'm fighting for everyone. Below is a picture I took with my sister. :) there will be a video of me walking on my own outside using a railing (I walked down a ramp, and then back up!) soon.
P.S. when I know my rehab schedule we can figure out visiting hours! I'm hoping to be home in a week or two though! At 4:15pm I got my NGT tube taken out, and am offically off any kind of tube.
