Trip to Rehab

Saturday, Oct.23

My visit on Thursday to Dr. Wall turned out to be good. Though I didn’t like him making me hurt some he then helped those areas not hurt so much. My person didn’t even know some of my areas were in that much pain. Dr. Wall did some myofascial trigger points, dry needle, and therapeutic laser, new stretches then I got to be hoisted into a whirlpool that was warm and had bubbles. Oh, did I come out a limp rag. My person and her mom wanted to get in it also but it was just for me. He also changed my pain meds, upped the gabapentan[ can’t spell that] and told Rachel [my person] to start me on something else but because of my liver enzymes we are waiting till she can talk to my oncologist. I slept almost all 3 and a half hours back to Austin and did it feel good! I was so hungry for my dinner that I could hardly wait for it. On Friday I felt so good that I even jumped off a small ledge at the park and scared everyone! It felt so good to run around again. Today I got to go be a part of my group called Therapy Pet Pals of Texas. I used to go to the hospital and visit sick people but the floors are too slippery now but I missed my Pet pal friends. We had a booth today at Dogtober fest at an outdoor mall and I got to sit in the booth and talk to all the funny dogs that came by dressed in costumes. I got a lot of looks because of being a tripawd but that’s okay, I am here with my person and she loves me and is proud of me. I got more attention and rubs than my co-worker Captain but he is okay with that as long as someone is rubbing his rump!

I go next Monday to have another ultrasound of my heart, then more blood tests, a chest x-ray and then back down to the Houston area for more of Dr. Wall. I get to start the underwater treadmill in two weeks, not too sure how I feel about that.

Must go, I hear a full treatball calling me.
