Today was a pretty good day. We actually got a lot done. Kevin went to therapy and his beloved Pam was there. They worked a whole hour on his arm and made great strides toward kicking some butt with Botox. While he was there, I quickly ran down to the Pharmacy and picked up some new meds and I think Kevin needed to be away from me just as much as I needed a break from him. We all know he loves Pam so I knew he would be in good hands. Here is a photo of the two of them today:
And today we also now have a consult with a pain clinic to try to get a handle on all of the pain meds Kevin is taking. I have been asking for this for months and I am so glad it is finally happening.
We also have a neuropsych consult in so that someone can give me some advice on how to handle Kevin when he is doing some of the things he is doing. This was something we were supposed to be having all along while at the VA, but it wasn't happening. Not once did anyone sit down with me and give me advice on how to deal with these behavioral issues and when we were being sent there we were told it was part of the in-house treatment plan.
So anyway, it seems like we really accomplished a lot today.
And tomorrow should be an excellent day! I don't want to say anything yet, but Kevin is in for a real treat tomorrow! I wish I could tell you guys, but I didn't make sure it was ok to beforehand so I am going to wait until tomorrow night. Let me just say - he is going to be so excited! (The stars really lined up for this one!)
And I know I have more comments to touch on, but I am going to skip it for tonight. I am coughing like crazy and I have to stop typing every couple of minutes to have a coughing fit. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow night and can get back to it all then.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
