The eagle landed at home today

I arrived home about 1 pm today after 8 weeks in the hospital/rehab.  I could not dance like i intended but tears of joy filled my space.  Nothing is as sweet as home....even wheel chair bound right now.   Not sure how long this stage will last, and I will be doing out patient PT for a while.   I move on muscle memory since I still have no feeling or sensory feedback from my hands or feet.  The doctors are hopeful that nerves will be restored some day.
   I am having "twinges" through out my body...imagine burst of electricity ......doctors think that is the nerve paths waking up.  So my main diet food is vitamin B-12 and vitamin D...with lots of fluids.  All for healthy red cells and hemoglobin.
  Sir Old Man is exhausted and we have lots of things to solve for our daily living.  I really hope to get to catch up on what I missed as I wait for more improvements.  Thanks for all the cards and thoughts and prayers.  At that darkest time, the only thing that matters to your heart are the people who make your life a joy.  Thanks again, and keep stitching.

My hemoglobin was normal this morning ......the first time in 40+ days.  Happy dance a nd a smile then a mile plus PT session.   Still no feeling in hands or feet but still praying they will return. 
  Thanks to all. Keep stitching.

Second week of rehab

Another week done. I walked about 380 steps yesterday and tackled steps and fine motor skills.  Finally I have more energy because of the healthier cells being produced from the vitamin B12. My doctor is on vacation next week so that's   a hint I will be here a while longer   
  Mentally I am much better.  I only ask in prayer for exactly what I need for the day. When the therapist ask me to do  anything I just do it. That is the only  way home. 
  I still have no feeling in feet and hands are numb.  But one day I dream of having  pain free sensations    I am learning to use that thing called muscle memory. Funny it should rear its head again. Strong muscle memory will help me walk out the door and back home soon. 
  Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. Each day I rely upon them.

OK-Rehab week one

OK ---One week update:  I have settled in doing 3>4 hours of PT and OT daily. Some days it is one step forward and the next day may be a step backwards.
 Not sure if the diagnosis came across. I had total depletion of  B-12 in my body which controls or regulates everything!! For my breakfast it is 25 vitamin pills and two vitamin shots O Boy such a tasty breakfast.
I still have no sense of touch in either my hands or feet making it hard to stand and walk properly or my hands to grasp anything. I want to go home so bad. I do whatever they ask of me and try my hardest in every task. Everything has to be relearned .  
 Thanks everyone for your continued prayers and support. You keep my strength up.

Hello from my space in Rehab

I was  transferred to a rehab unit yesterday from the main hospital.  I've been in a chair for a few hours just to see if my balance is functioning yet---not quite working.  Thank you all so much for your prayers to lift and encourage me.  I never dreamed that everything would turn upside down.
For now just let me say how much I appreciate each one of you. I have tough days ahead and intend to do what ever is required. I am very tired now but just wanted to give thanks for all of you.

Love and Hugs

Deb Health update

Good Morning,
Just a quick update on Deb's health. When all else we can do fails, Prayers and the Lord take over!!!!
 As you know Deb went in to have surgery which went well. All the after effects is where the problems started. O2 and BP not stable. Ended up in ER twice and CVICU twice before two Doctors said her symptoms sounded like vitamin B-12 deficiency . Ran tests and found she very little in her system. One Dr commented that is the lowest he had ever seen in a person and still be alive . He started listing symptoms and Deb was going Yes,Yes..... Started B-12 shots five days ago and is slowly starting see it starting to work. Hopefully the hosp is looking to transfer Deb to a rehab wing to start PT/OT
 Thank You for your continued Prayers

Sir Old Man
