The baclofen reduction went off without a hitch, and so far Ryan is not showing any negative signs. As it turns out, he actually had one of his best nights in months. I’m in no way suggesting this is a result of the decrease. I really believe it is completely unrelated. All I know is he experienced no noticeable discomfort from the adjustment… so far. I won’t rest easy until he hits the seventy-two hour mark on Sunday morning. I’ll be interest to see how he responds to therapies throughout the day.
I already tentatively schedule another reduction in exactly two weeks (January 26th). My goal is to bring him down another 20 mcg to 115. It’s completely realistic that Ryan can get to 100 mcg in February! This is a huge milestone to hit. I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
Kari and Sue
The women of the family will be spending Sunday and Monday together. Sue is driving to Morgantown early Sunday morning and staying through much of Monday, taking advantage of the federal holiday. My guess is Sue will arrive long before Kari stirs herself from bed, but this will give time to run to the grocery store and get her stocked-up on food. I see a mall visit in their future too.
Ryan and I will spend this time watching the NFL playoffs and surfing porn (just kidding… maybe). I’m kind of looking forward to having the house to ourselves. Guy time! I might even take the time to prance around in my boxers. Hell, I won’t take the time to close the blinds either! My thought is if you’re offended then don’t look. I’m sure I’ll find a way to get in trouble.
I always do.
