Your Own Doctor is Better at Listening than some of the Specialists
Monday, October 17, 2016
My doctor today was much better at listening to me about this numbness and pain. She was very patient with me and gave me a drug that is supposed to help with nerve pain. She's pretty sure it's a pinched or maybe twisted nerve from surgery and it can happen but doesn't always happen. I have to go back in a month to see her about if this drug is working. I also am starting slow with a low dosage and if in a week that isn't enough I can start taking 1 in the morning and 1 at night. We'll have to just watch it.
As for my eating today. I've been down right off. I'll think I want like peaches and 2 bites in I don't want it any more. So I tried some chili, chips, M&M's, toast, peanut butter sandwich and the list goes on. Nothing tasted very good.
Tomorrow I'm meeting my brothers to talk about how to distribute some of mom and dads assets. We need to get them out of dad's name and into ours leagally before we can apply for some vets benefits for living in the nursing home. Both of them are getting closer and closer to needing more help.
I did work on the quilt a about an hour today and I tried to crochet but too many kitties needed attention. So now I'm off to bed to try to sleep.
