Day 9-16 Take 2

Sorry I’ve been blog absent recently.  Had a crazy schedule with work, sleep & taking care of my family.

Day 9- Slept better than I have in a long time.  My sleep recorder showing that I didnt wake up at 2:00 a.m., which has been typical since I was diagnosed with CRPS.  I also felt rested when I got up. Beginning to have some feelings of more rapid memory recall. I am remembering more things that my kids, boss and co-workers ask me about. Ever since I was diagnosed with CRPS my memory has been AWFUL! I have spots that I can’t remember, I take longer to recall simple information like what time my kids were born, how old they walked, talked, etc for the first time. Now I am beginning to see that recall faster.

Day 10 – feeling a little tired today, back to my horrible wake-up schedule at 2:00 a.m.  Nothing new to report, although I am starting to feel a little more hungry more often.  Is that the h plyori healing or the EHT I am unsure.  I am just thankful that I am hungry at times!

Day 11 – Although my sleep monitor says I woke up briefly at 1:00 a.m. I have no memory of it. Woke up well rested today before my alarm at approximately 5:40 a.m.  That feels fantastic as my body has been wanting/needing to sleep in for a very long time. I am over that! I want to be up and at ’em first thing in the morning.  It is very exciting when I wake up ready to hit the ground running. Hope this continues.

Day 12 – Friday night’s sleep was awful. Couldn’t stay asleep. Vivid dreams awakened me. Weird! I normally have a lot of intense dreams, but these ones are VIVID! color saturation completely different. But… I am having some very odd sensations in my CRPS arm. I feel some electrical impluses being less painful. There is less coldness in my lower arm and hand. Maybe just a low pain day!

Day 13 – Stayed asleep all night! Felt refreshed when I woke up. NICE!!! Arm is still having weird electrical impulses.  Going to take it easy and use heat therapy later. See if I can get my CRPS limb to chill out.

Day 14 – Still waking up at 2:00 a.m. but not having any memory of doing so. It used to take me at least an hour to go back to sleep, but now I am apparently going right back to sleep. Feeling good. Going to attempt some housework and have friends over for dinner.

Day 15 – Was able to clean my kitchen and livingroom without becoming overwhelmed and exhausted! YEAH! Even made dinner and had house guests. SHH I even indulged with a glass of wine. Slept well last night. Woke up at 6:00 a.m., would have loved to sleep in, but I think my circadian rhythm has control of that. Did rest a bit in bed before getting up to clean.  Have this “nesting” urge lately. Wanting to clean shelves, clean out closet… now if only I had all that extra energy my friends are experiencing. Then again if I was able to eat enough then I probably would!

Day 16 – Slept well with the exception of the 2 a.m wake up call of nature! Was able to fall back to sleep within 30 minutes! Did go to work today and felt good. Came home to rest and actually did fall asleep! Dr. ordered daily naps! LOL. Made dinner for my family and still had enough umph to clean my kitchen afterward! I am loving my EHT!

More to come… promise to keep you updated!
