Appointment 2 Update

Well, I am relieved after this latest neuro appointment. Good news: I'm improving, in part because I am indeed regaining some sensation in my afflicted limb and also because I'm not getting worse. No on physical therapy for now. Maybe in a few months. Not until this nerve damage repairs itself a bit more - and the timetable for that is really unknown. Weeks. Maybe months. Hopefully no longer than that. I'm not setting any hard and fast personal goals for now - partly because I don't want to set myself up for disappointment and partly because I know damn well I am SO not in control of this particular situation.

Lyrica dose: down to 50 mg at night. Woo hoo! Hopefully I won't need it at all eventually, but if I do, at least this is a very small amount.

Continue to swim, walk, walk, swim, walk while swimming, etc. No bending, no prolonged sitting, no backbends or trampoline jumping. No yoga, sadly, but I guess that goes along with the backbends.

But I can skydive. You heard me, I said I AM allowed to skydive. I asked. I got a little sideways look and a definite pregnant pause, but yeah, I'm cleared. So yes, I'm making plans to do it someday. Maybe next year. I have no idea what's prompted this overwhelming desire to jump from a plane, but I'm just gonna go with it.

So that's the boring update. Boring is GOOD. VERY good.
