So when I came on here today I realized my post from last week was not on here, I must have not pushed the right button, sorry for that.
As I mentioned before they started Lenny on a nerve medication called Neurontin, which is there to help dull the nerve pain in his face. Last week they increased his dose from 2 times per day to 3 times per day, and this week they increased him to 4 times per day, and great news, it seems to be helping. You can see that the pain has eased a little when you look at him, so that is a bit of a relief. His right eyebrow is starting to gain function which makes him happy, at first it would not move at all and now it is moving quite a bit.
He is getting around the house really good now with his scooter. He can pretty much do everything he needs to do each day as long as I leave things out on the counters for him. I go back to work on Tuesday and I can't wait. I never thought I would say those words, but I am. I started making some work appointments today and it is the first time I have felt normal since the accident. It will be tough and I will have to keep a tight schedule to get my work in and Lenny's appointments, but that is a piece of cake compared to what we have been through.
Thank you again to all of you that are following Lenny's progress. It has been slow right now, which makes it a little boring, but the next steps will show themselves on July 13th when Lenny sees the ortho doctor again. We are hoping they release him to stand and start walking.
Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July!
Until next week,
