Today is a “Do Nothing” Day. I’ve been getting to the point where I almost think that I can get by with that on most days. I have to look at the calendar hanging on the wall to see what is happening on these days.
On Thursday last week… hold on, takes me awhile to just “think”… oh, I saw my Neurologist. He hadn’t seen me since the surgery back a month ago. He has such great things to say about me. He was very impressed with the way I looked…..and this blog. LOL! He likes my grammar and the way I write. Thinking about what to type and thinking while typing makes this thing great and very long to do. Now, the fact that I may take hours, or a day, just to think/remember things that I’ve done days ago. It’d be even harder if I was to tell you what I just did last hour! Short term memory sucks…
Wait, wait… We were talking about what the doctor thought. Let me get my thoughts back to that. He said that he was impressed with what I have done and accomplished so far. This pertains to what seems to be a better “thinking” process, while my scars on my head are looking pretty fine too. Eh, it was hard work to get all this personal skin healing done. I just have to pat myself on the back for it.
Now, I’ve also been going to these therapists (still) on a regular basis. As you’ve read, the physical one is pretty much easy since we are just doing physical therapy for a left-side too weak compared to a right-side really strong. It’s strong ’cause it shakes. “Why is the left so weak?” you may think. Well, I’m lazy. I just type. She wants to build my left-handed muscles. I’m not looking to build strong muscles on my left, because I have some already on the right. Ok, this physical therapy thing is just a “whatever”. It’s been 30 years and I know how this arm is just seeming to get better all the time after this surgery when I use it.
Okay, my Speech & Language therapist is being very helpful in pointing out “why” speaking or thinking of the real words that I want can just… take too long. I have trouble thinking of my words I need to say and the things we do are still hard and I need to really work at it to “maybe” get these words out of my mouth. It’s stupid that I just can’t think of these words to say. Need to keep working on thinking about what to say as long as I need or JUST STAY QUIET.
I have to do both therapies on Wednesday this week. Just the Speech & Language one again on Friday.
