So close I can almost taste it…

So this has been a crazy week in my home town. We just got 6-8 inches of snow over the weekend…the first big snow since 1989 (which I fondly remember!) So beautiful. Not loving the icy roads or black ice…but I’m definitely loving the view.

Our formal application is just waiting on one last thing to be filled out! One. Last. Thing. I’ve only had it for a week but it feels more like months. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve proofread it and changed things. Crossing my fingers that it will be sent TONIGHT! Then we wait I guess.

I have only three more PT appts. Can’t believe I’m almost done with that. I’m not completely cured yet but I’m making progress. When I started my muscles were at 16 microvolts…now its down to 9-10mv. I need to be at a 3. My therapist is looking into getting me the TENS machine for home use. I think it’s expensive though and I doubt my insurance will pay anything towards it. In the meantime, I’ll just keep up with what I know to do and one day I will be normal. Hopefully.

  1. My PT said the difference between the tense/relax states is important too. I never quite reached a low of 3 microvolts, I think I reached an average of 5… Maybe 4 once in awhile. But deliberate tensing was higher, in the teens, so that’s good! When I started there wasn’t much of a difference between tense/relax.

  2. Yes my strength has improved tremendously with a greater difference btw tense/relax states. Like you, when I started there was barely any difference btw my tense/relax state. The 16 was originally my relaxed state and now its 10. Baby steps :)

  3. i’m glad to hear you’re making some progress, that’s gotta be gratifying!
