When Sleep Finally Came...
Sleep did finally come for this one. She slept all day yesterday and into today until around noon-time. It really did her good. She did wake a few times. Laying in one position to avoid pain from movement didn't do her so well. She's not suppose to be pushing with her hands or arms but had to in order to help lift her body in the turns or adjustments. She was just careful to not push hard. She didn't hurt herself while doing so and didn't feel any added pressure to her spine.
The man changed her bandages a couple of hours ago. No pics this time. lol. He said it looks really good back there. When she had her first SCS surgery there was terrible bruising. This time there isn't, not as of yet anyhow. There are no visual signs of infection. Seem everything is just going great at this point.
A new friend told this one about something called Natural Calm. You can get it at most health food stores. It's completely natural so won't interfere with medication. It helps relax a body, and can help alleviate pain and help with sleep.
This one has already asked her owner if he would consider getting her some. He said yes. Hopefully will have it in the next couple of days. One thinks because it's natural it would be good for him to take also.
Am thinking this will be even great after the healing of the surgery. It may help even in decreasing the chronic pain. It's a possibility at least. Of course she doesn't know yet as she hasn't tried it, but is looking forward to letting others know if it does. If it may not help in one area the chances are it may in another, so would still be worth it.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Until next time....
