Let the Week Begin…
What a beautiful weekend here on the east coast! Perfect weather! Sunny, temps in the 70’s and a wonderful cool breeze. Doesn’t get much better than that!
My husband is working on an outside “Oasis” for us to kick back and relax. The best part will be the flower bench area he’s creating. Exciting! I’ll share more when the project is complete. In the meantime I was sporting my BalanceWear Vest working in my flower beds. This vest is such a blessing for me. One tool that helps control my balance issues, allowing me to do what I love and not be fearful of rolling down the hill. Wouldn’t that be a sight? lol! Our day wouldn’t be complete without the supervision from Max and Allie! We just love our four-legged kids!
Let the week begin. First stop, appointment tomorrow with my physical medicine physician, Dr. Paulin. He will evaluate and discuss treatment options for my toe curl. Looking forward to hear what can be done to straighten this toe. Sure would help with walking, don’t you think?
I spoke to his nurse, Carol, a few weeks ago who agreed that this issue may be due to my spasticity. “Come on in and we’ll take a look.” Last year, I was treated in their office for significant spasticity of my leg. My joints did not want to bend. I received a Phenol Injection Nerve Block to my calf. Did it relieve my spasticity? It helped. Most notably, I clearly demonstrated normal heel-toe walking technique. Praise the Lord! Simple pleasures of life. I will explain more about this amazing injection following my appointment.
Options. Choices. Hope. Embracing each and every one while striving to be the very best I can be. Remembering, He’s not done with me yet!
Make it a blessed day!
