GP doctor ordered in home nursing because of a decline in my health; I expect it's mostly to the decrease of prednizone ~ my body isn't producing the cortisol to replace it. Having said that, I thought I might have a RN out here to help with medication management (I sometimes mess up setting up my pills for the week or miss doses) & possibly physical therapy a couple of times a week. Well so far, I've seen 2 nurses, physical therapy & a home health aide to help me get in & out of our big clawfoot bathtub safely. HHA massaged my back, neck & feet. I lost any sense of modesty when she went into massage mode. I'm scheduled to see Occupational Therapist (OT) & speech therapy tomorrow. A SW is coming in next week to help with some transportation issues (and other more long term answers) when husband cannot take off to drive me & I can't drive for any given reason. Physical therapy's goal is for me to walk 150 feet with-o excessive pain/fatigue at the end of the walk. I took a walk on Tuesday! It was wonderful to get outside & walk like that (I slept the rest of the day but it was worth it)! I'm hoping/praying that these in home services will get my body "unstuck" , for lack of a better term. I'm tired of physically being in the same spot I was in last year. It's just so exciting for all of this going on.....gently nudging my body as far as it will go. I expect as I gain strength I'll be able to be about here more & offer more support.
