Good morning from the bus on this foggy Monday morning. A few interesting things have happened since my last post.
I’ll start with the main medical stuff: I had a pain clinic appointment a few weeks ago and got a prescription for a different kind of gel that we can put on my back. It seems like it helps a little bit. During that appointment I also mentioned that my ribs had been hurting off and on for a few weeks so the doctor ordered a chest X-ray just to make sure I didn’t any fractures. It turns out I do have a healed rib fracture but I don’t know when it actually occurred. I might be able to get more information on Valentines Day during my big vent clinic appointment. The X-ray also showed that one of my lungs wasn’t as “open” is it could be meaning I need to be better about doing my CoughAssist machine. :(
In terms of fun stuff: I’ve been able to hangout with Danielle a few times since the start of the New Year. For example, yesterday she and I went to a craft store where they had tons of different scrapbook papers and stickers. I have a mini planner that I use for day to day stuff and I like to decorate it with stickers and washi tape. I think I have too much… but oh well. It’s my current hobby haha. I don’t know why but it seems to relax me to just sit and look through all my sticker options and decorate the planner pages. Here are some examples:
