I want to say THANK YOU to every person in Ohio who has helped to get the COVID-19 numbers down to the point where my hip replacement surgery can actually happen. Back in January, when the doctor told me that I definitely needed a complete hip replacement, I could not have the surgery I needed as it was an “Elective” surgery, and Ohio was not doing any due to the COVID numbers. Now I just need the doctor to actually do the surgery.

“I have Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and Epilepsy. Winter is my favorite season as the humidity is properly frozen and cannot aggravate my neurons. No matter how cold it is, I can always put on another layer. Humidity is my personal kryptonite, causing MS aggravations and it even used to trigger seizures before we found the right combination of medications.
I consider myself a four-legged human, as my balance requires my extra set of legs to walk safely.” -Tasia

I slept upstairs in my bed last night. I ended up sleeping for eleven hours. I feel wonderful. It is amazing how much better I feel after sleeping in a real bed instead of on the couch.

I saw my MS Neuorolgist yesterday. I just realized how much I’ve been sleeping. I do PT, and take a nap. Brian jokes all the time about the “Tyrion effect” referring to my cat. I eat, and the I need a nap. Healing takes a lot of energy. Add MS and this hot weather with PT and it feels like all I do is PT, eat, read books and sleep.

I am so looking forward to when I get to sleep in my bed again. Sleeping downstairs on the loveseat size couch has gotten extremely old. However, I’m following the rules and staying on the ground floor, except for my one trip up the stairs a day. Showering is heavenly!
