Day 870 - Oct 16, 2010

Kevin is still doing very well today. We spent some time learning a new phrase - "I'm hungry" and we also went for a really long walk tonight after dark. Kevin is able to go out on the hospital grounds so we went outside and really pushed the envelope.

One thing I have noticed since he is taking less narcotics is that his walk is sturdier. Today we went downstairs to dinner and he didn't even take his cane with him. He walked very well and didn't lose his balance at all.

And tomorrow Breezy is going to go in at the beginning of the shift and I am hoping to get the bulk of the new audit done. I also seriously intend to sleep in. If anyone is thinking about calling me tomorrow - DON'T!!! Lol!

And that's pretty much it. 2 more days though, and there will be no narcotics in his system. YAY!!!

I'm so thrilled that the detox isn't as bad as you were afraid it would be. What a blessing! I hope the acupuncture works as well for Kevin's headaches as it has for my joint and muscle pain. I used to have to take 3 ibuprofen every night and go to bed with three or four heated buckwheat bags just to be able to sleep. Now I don't need any of those since acupuncture treatments, as long as I keep going at least once a month. If I hadn't experienced it myself, I wouldn't have believed it.

You and Kevin have been on my mind and in my prayers. Hope you were able to sleep in! Take care of yourself.
