Hi, welcome to the blog where I talk about the present. And I'm presently sitting in bed, by the fire with my doggy at my feet, feeling sorry for myself. I have a wicked cold. Anytime you have a head injury and something like a cold, the cold will knock you on your ass.
This past week we had Thanksgiving. It reminded me I'm so thankful to my family and my friends, the medical people that have kept me alive. The other cool thing was my daughter came to visit. It was short but check it out. It snowed. She loves snow. It was about six inches of snow. Pretty cool. You know, every morning she wakes me up to watch sponge Bob. I think she's on to something because you shouldn't wake up and watch the news. The news is so depressing. Have you watched it lately. I think I'll watch Sponge Bob from now on. My favorite character is Patrick. I don't think he has a brain.
Anyway, I start my therapy next week. You know, the weighted vest I was talking about before. It's pretty cool. It's kind of like a counter balance. I have weakness on my right so they put a lot of weight on my left. It works pretty good. I'll try therapy like sitting up, using a walker, etc. It's all new, cutting edge stuff. Some people can't believe it works, but they tried it on my and it works pretty good. My friend here is dealing with her family insurance and I think she's about to go through the roof. She's typing like she's about to kill my computer. There's one way to avoid the whole insurance thing. Become a ward of the state, like I am, lose everything. Have brain surgery a few times. And, if you're alive, at the very end, voila, you don't have to worry about insurance.
The other thing I've been doing a lot of lately is painting. It's a good way to get your mind off of everything. And to exercise your hands. It's been a lot of fun. I'll show you a few examples. Hope you have a good week. Love, B. Nice
