Day +28; Starting Physical Therapy
I apologize for the lack of updates. It is so hard to believe that I have been home for two weeks now…
We knew recovery was going to be difficult physically but it has truly been a mess chasing down doctor appointments all while trying to recover. Summer is not the time to need to see specialists as we’ve found out. I am still lacking a much needed specialist and am still working daily on trying to solve that problem.
I am also struggling quite a bit still from coming off of steroids. My body is still in shock. My cortisol levels are abnormal and are causing muscle wasting, swelling (at times I cannot fully open my eyes), and adrenal fatigue where all I can do is sleep. We do finally have an appointment with an endocrinologist next week to get this problem addressed.
On a positive note, Sadie and I are excitedly discussing that physical therapy starts today!! She wants me to be able to regain the endurance to play fetch forever! 🎾
I leave in an hour and am thrilled to get started!
