Bruce, Caroline

And the Progress Continues

Hey everyone. Well, I just finished yet another PT session. My insurance
will only cover one more session, so after that I guess I'm on my own. OT
never actually happened yesterday, so that'll be happening this afternoon.

This morning I went to a doctor appointment where we discussed ways to
reduce the RLS symptoms. I'll be starting Requip tonight. It's interesting though.
I was told today that Requip is actually a Parkinson's Disease medication,
but it's one of those meds that has branched out into other areas. The one
bad thing that I need to be really aware of is that it could cause increased
dizziness. Then there's the nausea factor. I guess that if nothing else,
John and I will be spending lots of time together. SMILE!

In any case, it appears that things are still looking good. I don't
remember if I mentioned the last time I wrote that my walker tray had
arrived, and it's making it so much easier to get my food and other things.
It's great!

Well, I think that's about it for now. I just figured that I'd post an
update while I was waiting for OT. Catch everyone later.
