Since you haven’t heard from me in awhile, I will back-up to November. Oh what a rough month. I shared with you all of my swallowing troubles but I didn’t tell you about what happened when Big Bad Dad, my husband, went out of town.
It was the lowest of the lows. I was unable to lift my arms and was so weak that I couldn’t even change out of my pajamas. I went 3 days without washing my hair. Ewwwww. There was no way I could lift my arms to shampoo.
During this week I was also unable to lift the milk to drink my multiple glasses of yumminess and eat cereal, which had become my “go-to food” because of the coolness of the milk and the softness of the food which made it easier to swallow.
By the end of the 1st week in December I noticed that my health and symptoms had drastically improved. I began assessing what changes were made during that time and discovered I hadn’t had any milk in weeks.
Another shock to my body was red meat. I don’t even eat that much red meat but one evening I went and put a sliver of sausage in my mouth and man was I paying for that.
Within minutes I was struggling with my speech, having trouble lifting my arms and in pain. My hubby even had to brush my teeth for me that night because I couldn’t lift my arms.
Since January I have been rockin' and rollin’! I still have trouble with fatigue, using my brain, swallowing and weakness but I am not in pain!!YEAH!
Because, I feel good! For the first time in almost 3 years I have been able to play with my kids without pain!
I know what you are thinking…"Norma Lee, if you are feeling better, where have you been and why haven’t you been blogging?”
Of course, this doesn’t mean that I haven’t been doing some blog-able stuff!
I have 4 posts from AUGUST that I haven’t published, as well:
- laundry room make-over
- Monkey’s party
- Monkey’s big boy room
- Playroom make-over
- more projects that I just can’t think of right now
