I don't like my pick up times to go to stop and shop tomorrow!I'm thinking of cancelling them and just scooting to walgreens!

today's happennings

I had pt early this morning!I started off doing the machine thats similar to the nustep @ the "y" for 10 mins!Then I steached my calif's and other leg muscles!Then I was asked,"do you want to walk with a Cain or nothing"?You know what my response was,nothing!I did great without any assisted devise :)!I even had to walk around obstacles she put in my way!I hope I'm doing well enough to be pt approved to not have to use a walker :)!Then I went to my ISP meeting @ hics!That went very very well :).Came home and my homemaker came over,I had her wash my bed sheets and do a good making of it!Thats something to put on the walmart list,another set of sheets cause I only have the one!

Eventhough I didn't have hics today Ive kept very busy :)!I did some fbing,on and off all day!Paid the last bill I had to this month.I heard on the news tonight that verizone will start charging a fee for paying the bill online!I pay all my bills online!I don't like this kind of talk,if they do its gonna be time to get a new carrier!Ive got to remember to take something out for dinna every morning,hot pockets are not doin it anymore!Ive got some nice steaks,chicken breasts,1 lb of ground serloin,tons of mac and cheese!Time to get cooking :)!

overslept

I woke up a tad too late to catch an 8.29 pickup to go to hics!I could have rushed around and made it but Ive learned that is when I make too many misstakes!I go to hics tomorrow after therapy for an ISP meeting(individual service program) anyway!I'm a busy guy :)!

11.23.11

I had a home visit from KJ seems like yesterday now then she met me for my appt. with dr.Katz!He put me through lots of memory tests and for the most part I did fairly well!Then he gives me words to remember.Then he alternats my concentratoin,asks me what the words were,I got most of them but with a small hint I was able to recall all of them!I asked about the driving eval and he tested my vision!He said something wasn't quite right with that :(!Next time Ill make it right :)!
Tomorrow Jan is coming all the way from Cape Cod to pick me up then bring me to her house for Tg dinna :)!When God created this pretty lady,he created perfection!I love you Jan.

11.22.11

I had hics today!We watched regarding henry!I have the dvd but watching that with many other survivors that have been through similar situations never gets old!Harisson Ford did a fantastic job portraying a tbi survivor!Even the little things about a survivor he does well,not little but sometimes unnoticed!Normal things like how memory is affected but also how emotion is too!The only knock I have about the flick is the rehab wasn't factual but if it was the movie would be way too long!
Tomorrow KJ is making a home visit at 7am cause I have a doctors appt. with my nurologist!Hes gonna put me through some easy and some hard memory tests!KJ is gonna go too!I want to speak with him bout the driving eval too!The last time I told him it cost me $300 he didn't really believe me.I remember he said there is a test you can take to see if your ready for the driving eval that only costs $15!Ill see if I can do that one!

Monday, November 21, 2011

ot

Ot was great and at the same time very challenging!I did an exercise designed to improve my hand eye coordination by putting these pins in like a peg board,then a sleave over the peg,then add a washer!I did that with my left arm,I was thinking,I could never do this with my right,hope that's not next!Next was to take them all apart with my right side (arm and hand)!Doing exercises similar to this I try to see what works for me and incorporate it into everything I try to use my right hand for!

11.14.11

Today Ive got ot at braintree rehab!I did have the "y" too but,I'm not feeling like going today.I overslept a tad.

another trymy my

anotherattemptwithmyphone

scoot to walgreens

I had a extremely successful scoot to walgreens even though I forgot to get some cookies,I was able to give that pretty young lady who always takes great care of me,my card with my web site and email address on it!Then I find out she is on face book too :)!

ride issues

While booking my rides 4 the wk the web site said I needed to add value to my account!I then tried to do it online which I have many times b4 but,it says inaccurate password!I think Ive got it right but,I called them and added value the old fashioned way,I think Monday it will get recognized!

plans for today

I was gonna attempt scooting to stop and shop in Holbrook but I think I'm gonna wait on that task.My scooter has been workin well but I'm just not ready to start something new!I do need to book my rides for the wk,maybe Ill scoot to walgreens or d&d's.Ive got to stay busy!

Saturday, November 12, 2011

tomorrow

Tomorrow is my day off but,I do have to do a load of wash,book my rides,maybe try a scoot to stop and shop in holbrook :)!

thinking

I'm thinking instead of attempting a scoot to stop and shop in holbrook,Ill scoot to walgreens and pick up the stuff I know they have!I can always try scooting to stop and shop tomorrow :)!

11.12.11

I did have trips booked to and from stop and shop in Braintree and the pick up times were not bad I just don't like depending on others if Ive got it in my power to depend on only me " :)!Im thinking today may be a good day to see if my scooter can make it to stop and shop in Holbrook!Ive also got to pay all my bills but,I can take my time with that task :)!

Friday, November 11, 2011

We all make so many choices on a daily or hourly basis but,I believe the most important chose is to be happy or sad,depressed!I proudly have chosen I want to be the happiest I can be :)!I could very easily been depressed!Its no picnic living with tbi but,I choose to look and emphasize the positives in my wonderful life!I could choose to be bummed about what Ive lost,great career,with a great salary!In 2001 I earned in excess of $150.000,my fiance,she couldn't deal with my tbi!Friends I lost were basically drinking buddies so that's no loss :)!
I choose to think of my progression from being comatose for 3.5 months to being pretty much totally independent!I guess the biggest hurtle left is to get my licence to drive a car then to get back on two wheels:)!

So far today KJ has made a home visit,I asked if she would check my speaker connections on my puter cause they are not working!All of them seemed fine so we thought my surge protecter was bad!I noticed the light switch on the wall was off!Turned that on and the light on my speakers came on,hopefully they work now,Ill check lata.Ive had ot!I worked on my writing!We found that Ive got to have a pen that has a good point to it with no resistance!I was also working with some of the aids on the pen to make it easyer to hold and try to manuver!Tonight I'm going bowling with hics!Steak and cheese calzone is gonna be my dinna :)!

forever opptomisstic

This is not the redsox of the 80's and 90's,these are the sox of the meleniem!

right thing

I told my them about the swelling in my spine,they looked and felt it,an attending physician said go to south shore hospital!I thought that's not the right thing cause dr.Koabell told me any issues call him!I left a message on his voice mail!I'm not in any pain so its no real emergency!

9.19.11

Ive got just one place to go today!Braintree rehab,Ive got pt!I'm noticing some swelling at the base of my spine!I don't know if its got something to do with the pump.I'm thinking I should mention that to my pt!
