Now Playing: Day 849-The Final Road To Survival
My friend and his Son are having a GREAT time out west! Even having a few Rocky mountain high moments. LITERALLY! They will be spending the next few days roughing it with their camping gear in the mountains surrounded by Mother Nature. PRICELESS. The pictures he sends speak for themselves and its nice to be a part of their adventures. Yesterday they attended a Rockies game with his cousin. I am so glad they are having a great time!
My other friend John who now lives out west is in his first month detoxifying his body. No more cigarettes or alcohol but plenty of natural foods and lots of exercise. He's also enjoying new yoga classes which allow for far better sleep than he has in years. GOOD FOR JOHN! Robbie kitty even looks super content enjoying his new life out west.
Today was my first visit after the insurance company brought some great news this week by covering up to 12 physical therapy sessions and another visit to the Nutritionist. My intestines still haven't eased up yet but I am doing better adjusting to the pressure pain. I also haven't felt the need to use pain medication. I went back to the same group-Nutritionists I saw 8 years ago at our local hospital. The best thing they could offer me with my unique medical situation was the same game plan I already started. 95% liquids and must be watered down. They also want me to start using more whey protein drinks which are easier to break down in the body. Sugar is going to be a toughie seeing it takes a lot to keep my levels up so that will remain touch and go. They gave me lots of sample powder packets that you just add into water full of vitamins, nutrients and digestible fiber. Since I am a rare breed, they don't see many patients like myself very often that don't already have a tube or IV line for feedings. They do understand the complications and high risks with line infections in which my weakened immune system could not handle so I have to continue consuming the best I can with what my body can tolerate.
It was a long and tiring day so my brain didn't have time to think about any anxiety. Thank goodness for a break!! Keeping my mind busy is important and hopefully the physical therapists might be able to provide me with some ideas/suggests on new hobbies without jeopardizing my health. I have my last doctors appointment Thursday so we are hoping to get additional insight and a better perspective on how to cope with any unnecessary stress.
This evening I finally felt comfortable enough to go back to the local park. Once we pulled up and started making our way to the side walk we were greeted by two feather friends. Frank & Mike. My how fast they have grown! It was so nice to see them along with the other geese. I still feel horrible that they could not rescue and rehabilitate Miss Goose but I know she is no longer in pain. Eric says, "That one single goose the other day was her finally flying free because you let her live again." I hope she is watching over the baby rabbits too in a safer place called, "Heaven."
