Deh gud gnuz keeps rolling in. Dis am frum MuggleMary.
As some of you know, I had a bad fall on Nov. 28 and incurred a TBI (traumatic brain injury)that has made my life very interesting to say the least.
A couple of months ago I received a package of info from the MN Brain Injury Alliance, and I’m very glad I did! Enclosed was an application to join a study about aftercare for TBI patients…being run by…ready? The World Famous Mayo Clinic!
I got the call a few weeks ago saying I’d been randomly selected to be in the enhanced care group. I had been hoping for this. To have the worst injury of my life be treated by Mayo is something I never even dreamed of!
When I left the hospital and aftercare, and had had a lot of follow up appointments, I still feel like the medical world had tossed me off the dock with a tiny lifeboat.
I didn’t know who to tell about some of my symptoms and felt pretty badly that I couldn’t even figure out who to talk to, and up they popped! Miracle!
My progress has been slow, if not minimal. I still get terrible dizzy spells, and it turns out there’s PT for that, and I shouldn’t still be so dizzy!
I got sent an article about other people losing their sense of smell,and discovered that a lot of people had similar phantom smells like I do ( cat urine and cigarette smoke).
I’m so grateful for all the help I have received from all of you,
and will pay you back if I get a settlement from the lawsuit.
Hugs and Schmoooz all around!
