Myra is feeling pretty good the last two days. She had dialysis on Monday along with 2 sessions of physical therapy.
Tuesday she had more therapy and she is really, really sore from starting to use muscles again. She said everything hurts, including her neck where she had whip lash years ago. Going from lying flat on your back for 5 1/2 weeks to slight movement will do that to a person.
Her blood pressure dipped in the middle of the night and "Dr. Myra" thinks its because she's getting too much insulin. She and her doctor consulted and he concurred with her that she is possibly getting too much insulin, so they've cut back slightly.
I say "Dr. Myra" but with a level of seriousness. She really is her own advocate and knows her body best. If we had listened to one of her kidney specialists who suggested to stop dialysis only 3 weeks ago, she probably wouldn't be with us anymore. Myra said "Everybody keeps telling me I'm getting worse, but I feel better and I want to fight".
