I have some good news on Saturday morning I was informed that I had an order to go home for the weekend. After my 2 morning sessions I was allowed to leave and I went and saw the Sisterhood movie with my mom, sister, and cousin. We also went out to dinner, it was nice to get out of the hospital and to be home. I hadn't been home in almost 5 weeks and my bed still feels good. I think I lost a lot of fat on my butt though because sitting on hard surfaces is not comfy at all, I feel like I'm sitting on my bone! The hospital also gave me a cane to help my walk, I'm going to decorate it soon so its not so boring. This morning I woke up around 6 with really bad pain in my right ribs and had to be rushed back to the hospital where the pain seemed to stop. (My brother thinks its because my body is used to the hospital)
Therapy is going well, my PT therapist is uping one of my sessions to an hour each day. On Friday I went on a fifteen minute walk outside, and it was so hard. Having to relearn how to live again is hard, but so worth it. Because now everything I do means more, I appreciate it all more. Whatever ends up happening to me I know will be okay, because its in God's plan. There's already a path set out for me and all I can do is follow it, I'm at peace with everything in my life right now. This whole thing has taught me so much about inner strength, acceptance, myself, and the kindness of others. All I can do is work hard and be happy about being alive.
The doctors are still unsure of my diagnosis, and have said they might never know and it's okay. I mean all that matters is I'm improving. I was told I may never drive again because sometimes I have double vision, and shaky vision and it's okay because gas is expensive! The bright side is I can take the bus and save money! Below is a video from Thursday's afternoon PT session. And my best news yet, I was told I would be discharged on FRIDAY (the 15th!). I'll still have follow up appointments and out patient therapy for a few months around my area but that's it. At least until we figure out what it is I have, if we ever do, and if we need to figure out a treatment plan. But I get to go home in 5 days!
Thank you all for your prayers!
