Erin went to physical therapy yesterday. She said she walked and walked and did the most she has ever done there. The therapist thought that the brace was fine and was going to call Larry, the orthotic specialist. We are due to go in to tweet the brace, if needed.
Barb, Erin has been very upbeat this week (talking noncessantly at times!) so, she has worn the brace most days for most of the week. For the couple of weeks before, she was feeling very low, so she hardly wore it at all, sleeping all day and maybe eating a little something in the evening.
She is wearing a patch again. She has had double vision for the past couple of days.
Erin made a 20 minute appearance in the living room about 10 pm this evening, the first time I had seen her all day. She had an early breakfast about 8 am while I was still asleep, then she slept all day. She was very cheerful and after a diet coke, but nothing to eat, she said she was going back to sleep. The light is out again.
On Wed. my friend Joanne from Lodi came for dinner. At first I thought I was not going to be able to wake Erin up, but after about 15 min she appeared, anxious to see Joanne, and Erin had dinner with us.
It seems as if you now have to cursor down quite a bit to read comments. After 4 1/2+ years with the old format, it is taking some getting used to.
