I actually requested that I be sedated for 24 hours in a hospital yesterday.
That’s where I was.
Thank God for a wonderful Neurologist.
He gave me a bolus, which is a concentrated dose of Baclofen. It relaxed the muscles in 5 minutes. My blood pressure was the highest it had ever been.
My muscles are beyond sore. They have been in the excited state for several days. My skin still burns, but at least I can move now.
Sore muscles are bearable.
Look, when I say “thank God for a wonderful Neurologist,” I mean I don’t think I could make it through life without him and his team.
My wife, as always, deserves a debt of gratitude. She takes over as my knight when I can no longer think for myself. Unfortunately, this is becoming more frequent, as time goes by.
My oldest daughter is incredible. She and my youngest worry about me more than I wish they would. My oldest forces joy into my life where the youngest brings it natural.
My stepson, was there. Letting me curse, getting me to the doctor. He means an unspeakable amount to me.
My mother-in-law. Well, she brought me her puppy to play with. She continues to astound me. She instinctively knows what I need.
These people know what to do and when. I could not pray for a better support group.
Thanks to all of these, beyond wonderful people.
Thanks, and God Bless,
Jay C. Theriot
