Good to be back

I have been in the hospital for the past 2 weeks, and then stayed at my mothers house after I got out My doctor took one look at me and admitted me right away. I had become completely bedridden and lost the use of my legs. I NEVER thought that I would have ended up the way that I did. I could no longer take care of myself. I could not get out of bed, as I could not stand. I could no longer go to the kitchen and get something to eat or drink, could not take a shower without help in and out of the shower. My mother put a plastic chair in the shower, being I could not stand.

You never realize the little things you take for granted. For example, putting on your own clothes. My mother had to put my socks, panties, pants and shoes on for me. Being unable to just get out of bed without help. Being unable to go into the kitchen if you are hungry or thirsty. Unable to drive your own car.

I have learned to never take anything for granted anymore. I was scared to death. I thought I was going to be bedridden for the rest of my life. I was too young to be going through this B.S.

But, I got a second chance. I was able to walk out of the hospital!!!! Granted, I have to use a cane now or for the time being. But, I FU$*EN walked out of there on my own two feet!!!!!! The doctors told me that they were not surprised to see me walking out of there. That I had the best attitude of anyone they had ever seen in my situation. One doctor told me "If you think you are handicapped, you will become handicapped" How true those words are. I refused to think that I was going to end up that way while I was in there.

I was so determined to walk out of that place. I went in on a gurney and walked out on my two feet. It was almost unheard of in the condition that I was in.

BUT I DID IT!!!! GO MEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed you guys and GuG while I was gone. I probably missed a lot and a lot of goodies found. But, I think being home and able to walk again is the best gift that has happened to me.

 

Words to live by........ I am living proof that it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be honest, I am not doing as well as when I wrote the blog.  Now, I really need the use of my cane.  My feeling is my body was so amped up with the medication that they had me on in the hospital, is out of my system now.

But, I am going to start pt next week, which I have never had before.  So, hopefully that will help get me back on my feet again without the cane. or not needing it as much.

I am still being positive and not giving in to this disease.  I know the pt will work for me and I am determined to walk away from the end of all my pt sessions without the use of my cane.

I did it in the hospital, I can and will do it again!!!!!!!

Thank you for asking Lynn. 

 

 

I was standing in the park, wondering why frisbees got bigger as they got closer. Then it hit me.

 Well, somebody has not been paying attention to all the new blogs!  Me. 

 Glad you did walk out of there.  Scary feeling wondering how or what state you will leave the hospital. 

 Hopefully soon you will get rid of that cane.  I kept at my pt like a madwoman and made myself proud.  I was out to prove that I could dress myself, do my dishes, use the restroom ALL by myself and go back to work. 

 Good for you!  You are right.....set your mind to it and you can do anything.

 And seeing how it's now the 20th of May, how are you doing now?

 

If I was standing on a fish, I'd slip and fall......

Thank you everyone.  It's good to be back Smile
