Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Massage Round Two, Synthroid Round One~ 
23rd-Feb-2010 10:46 pm
First day of my thyroid meds . . . I don't feel any different yet (hehe). But I had my second deep tissue massage, and it was far less painful than last time.

I'm sure I'll be just as sore, though.

My massage therapist Amanda's baby daughter was diagnosed as having Noonan's Syndrome, a collection of physical and possibly developmental issues that will require some special care. She's taking little Gwen for an MRI in a week or so, in order to monitor the vein in her head that has the doctors worried.

We talked a lot about this, about the work required to act as go-between with the different docs and facilities and service-providers. We both agreed that some of the hoops are held so high in order to discourage would-be jumpers, if not restrict them altogether. She's determined to find out what her options are, even if it's next-to-impossible.

I told her I remain convinced that there's good to come of this, that Gwen's survival is a miracle (since at one point she told me one of the twins might not make it) and that I know she will be blessed by this little girl's life.

I also know she will be tested and pushed and pained. I couldn't offer her any real advice except to remember to care for and about herself as well as her children. She seems to be level headed and determined to do just that. I know Amanda's strong faith is going to come in extremely handy.

One thing I know for sure; if Amanda's spirit is as strong as her hands, she hasn't got anything to worry about.

Marilyn, It is so sad about Amanda's little Gwen, and I wonder why people have so many trials to go through. I am glad you are getting the massages again, and hope this shoulder will heal up too. My mouth is real sore this morning, but that is normal Doctor Mary said. It is more swollen also, even though I have put ice packs on at least five times each day. Today I take them out myself, brush them for the first time and rinse with warm salt water.

I am going up to Our Daily Bread this afternoon to check how to set up the tables and leave the stuff, boards, cards, pegs etc. I should be fine to go tommorrow night. I did get another prescription of pain pills, as she didn't want me to run out over the week-end. I just folded two loads of clothes and took garbage and trash all out.

I must let Chubby in now and feed the big boy. Have a good day and I hope that you will feel better soon. I hope Charlie is better today also. Sue

This comment is another example of a potential ENTRY for your own blog, Suzy! You wrote interesting stuff that would be good to actually blog.

Maybe another lesson (???) is in order.

I'm praying all will be well with Gwen. Amanda will be okay, no matter what -- there's no doubt about that.

One thing I know for sure; if Amanda's spirit is as strong as her hands, she hasn't got anything to worry about.

Now THAT'S the truth! (smile)

I'm glad it was easier this time around. I think the massages are important!

I can't wait to see how those new meds do...

Hang in there, I am sure things will work out for the best soon enough.

Best wishes for baby Gwen and Amanda. :)
