Let me get a few updates out of the way. First, the bed is fixed! Thank goodness. It was brought back to life yesterday morning. After me spending the entire morning on the phone with technical support on Friday and then another three hours yesterday by a repairman all it came down to was one bad cable. It was that simple.
Twenty-four hours later it is still working perfectly. By now I have run it through all the functions both to test then to actually use them on Ryan. It’s true in so many parts of life, you don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone.
Also of importance, Ryan’s baclofen was reduced again today from 60 mcg to 45 mcg. A twenty-five percent decrease! Last year at this time he was at 400 mcg, so he is at 11.25% since then. I already scheduled the next appointment for April 16th, pending no negative effects from this reduction. My plan is to take him to 30 mcg. Then… the following one will trial him off the medicine entirely!
Now, the most important thing is today is Sue’s birthday. Word is, she turns 29 again this year. If you’re out on Facebook and have the time it would be nice to send her a note. I tried to pull off the birthday celebration equals a birthday suit logic, but I think I just got myself in trouble.
