Many things are weighing heavy on my mind and this week I MUST make strides of improvement. I have until the 27th to improve from my last weekly review or I will be denied further coverage.
I am at that point of plateauing - but not from lack of trying. Each day I push myself to the brink, shaking uncontrollably from the pain in my legs - fighting to get beyond my last "record breaking day".
They say that my case is unique and in the beginning of my stay, they ALL said that I WOULD WALK. They no longer talk this way and wondering if they have lost hope?
Since last Thursday, when I attended my Care Conference - I get a feeling that they have lost hope in me, otherwise - why would they suggest that I transfer to Long Term Care?
Feelings of being put between a rock and a hard spot is part of every day....yet if they continue to ignore the issues of my Lymphedema, Osteo Arthritis in knee joints, and Tendonitis...then perhaps it is time to move elsewhere.
Monday, Wednesday and Thursday will be FULL days of therapy. Christmas day will be a shortened version of therapy. Although today (Sunday) should have been a shortened day, I had two sessions of 40 minutes each - in OT and PT. Perhaps it's their way of trying to extend my stay to try to include a stand of endurance...
Or do I just need a Christmas Miracle?
