LMS (Michelle) Update August 10
Posted by lms on 8/9/2016, 4:38 pm
Hi all I know its been a long time since I have posted an update and well.. there are two reasons for that. First there isn't a lot to report. She continues to have incremental improvement especially with her speech. Some phrases she says are absolutely normal and if she isn't tired she sounds awesome. But she has been tired a lot lately so at times she is still slurring. She is becoming more independent with her transfers out of and into her wheel chair because her strength is increasing in her left leg which is great. the second reason for no update until now is her dad had to go back to Texas to have heart surgery. So I have been staying in the apartment with Michelle and the only computer in her house that automatically logs in to Bay Equest so I can post is in the main house. This is the first time I have been on that computer because I have not been in the main house since her dad left. His surgery is scheduled for August 17 and he isn't expected back her til probably after the first of September. I have also been looking into Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to see if Michelle is a candidate for that type of treatment. That treatment has been know to help with TBI patients that have come home from the war and sports injury concussion syndrome. It helps mostly with the memory issues. If anyone knows anything about it please send me a message. She may or may not be a candidate I still have to talk to her neuro surgeon about it.
