I'm getting ready to make an appointment with the Bioness rep to talk about a problem with the stimulator. I'm having a fairly significant pain in a couple of places. The technicians moved the location of the electrodes because they thought they were too high. That was before they realized the electrodes were on upside down, so my confidence level isn't at an all time high. The 2 techs I see couldn't be nicer, both look like they are a couple years out of elementary school! If I don't get some better answers this time, I may have to go to another facility, I'm not sure I'm buying this is the way it should work.
The parents are blowing into town tomorrow. They have been on a visit to VA to see family and friends from when they lived down there. Obviously the family they are visiting was family before they lived there, I just wanted to be clear on that. One of my Mother's cousins passed away last week, so the visit was both mini vacation,and family obligation. My mother's one aunt was also 100 on New Years Day, so that's enough of a reason to go down right there. It's the Northern Neck of VA, great fishing, but not much else there! The mother hasn't seen my new do, so that will be like the big reveal on Movie and a Makeover.
I'm going to utilize the energy my 74 year old father has for working in the yard, I'd probably do that even without the MS, it's fun watching him go! He's a little wisp of a man, 5'9 3/4 ( maybe 5'7?) and claims to still be 157 1/2 lbs, which is probably close. He is quitting smoking right now, not always pleasant to be around during those times. I think my one aunt told him to never come around again when he was trying. I kid about him, but I realize all of a sudden he isn't as much like the energizer bunny anymore. Still better then most his age, or me, but not as much as I am used to, and I want that to stop happening.
