Zone Therapy

Today I had such a great experience!

Zone Therapy

Big, HUGE thanks to everyone who recommended it.  Not only do my feet feel great but my hip hurts less, my shoulders and neck feel looser, and overall I feel calm and relaxed.  

Zone therapy isn't suppose to miraculously cure me but hopefully we can get some stimulation going.  Anything that will possibly make the process quicker and easier I am willing to try!   

I had a Dr. appointment with my neurologist today.  He was very happy with the progress I have made and said that my reflexes are much stronger.  Keep plugging along!

Stephanie was diagnosed with Guillan Barre Syndrome [ghee-YAN bah-RAY] in January 2010. This syndrome is a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks its own nerve cells. Guillan Barre Syndrome left Stephanie almost entirely paralyzed in a matter of hours. She spent five months in the Easter Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls. Stephanie was three months pregnant when she was hospitalized with Guillian Barre. During her five month stay in the hospital she gave birth to her second son, born 7 weeks premature. Come and help support Stephanie and her family in a night of song and benefit.

WHEW!  I am one tired chica!

Therapy has been so awesome this week.  My theerapist were able to get me on my hands a knees.  We all were pretty excited how easy it was.  That is my new homework, to do as many of the movements as I can on my own.  Then slowly but surely I will be able to do it all on my own.

I also am able to roll off of my stomach and to my back.  Not very often do I get stuck but if I do Jack is usually happy to come push me over the rest of the way.  He feels so helpful and I think he likes pushing Mom around.  

My other homework is trying to lift my butt off the ground.  I am unable to push through my right arm unless someone holds my hand down.  It makes this task more difficult but it's still not impossible.  I just have to keep practicing and getting stronger.  That's how everything has started and progressed thus far.
