The place where optimism most flourishes is the lunatic asylum.
I am not an optimistic person by nature. And I’m pretty sure that I’m not pessimistic either, but you never know. 😛 Yet I am holding onto hope that Lyo will be back at work soon and stop driving me crazy at home.
Saturday he decided that he was well enough to do some minor things around the house. Pushing, pulling, and carrying things at random. I’ll admit that for the day he did pretty well. It was at night and the following day that he went down hill… and fast.
Now not only does he have his back to work on, but there was a troubling new symptom too. A strange taste in the back of his throat.
I’m not an alarmist, but I’ve watched enough health shows to know that this symptom is not good. Not when paired with spine issues. I still have to wait though until his doctor can take a look at him before I go jumping to conclusions.
His doctor is a good one.
And by that I mean nothing is off the table until he goes through the check list. And even then he will double check just to make sure that he didn’t cross something off that could possibly be the cause. He cares not only as a doctor, but as a true friend.
I trust Lyo with him.
And that is a really big step for me. I don’t trust easily. And I especially don’t trust doctors. Not since I figured out that they can be bullied and cowed just like everyone else. (That was at the age of 9 for those of you keeping track.)
So Lyo is off for PT today and a brief visit with his doctor while I dread tomorrow.
Tomorrow is my once in 5 year visit to the dentist. 😦
There are few things worse than getting a dentist who doesn’t really care about the patient sitting in the chair. It’s worse when the whole office is like that. And it really bites when they are the only office within 50 miles that takes your insurance.
I will just have to keep thinking that there is a special place in hell for him. A place where I get to do all the things that are illegal to do while someone is alive. 🙂
At least I’ll get to have a beer afterwards. 😛
