Taking one day at a time!

August 9, 2008 at 11:06 am

Thank you for replying to my post. We don’t know what caused my gbs. On a wed. the fingers on my right hand went numb and by the next wed. I could not stand or walk without much assistance. Thats the day I was admitted to the hosp. and started that night on IVIG. I was on neuro floor for 6 days and then straight to rehab for 3 weeks. In hosp. for 1 mo. I came close to being ventilated but was able to maintain my airway. Thank God.

My daugher is an RN and had me diag. before taking me to the hosp, what a saint.

As for my lifestyle prior to gbs. I am an RN I was going to school to get my BSN, working full time as unit manager in emergency department, very STRESSFULL job!:eek: I had been dieting, lost 40 lbs and was working out at curves, which I loved. So you can see, miss independent, thats me and having to depend on others just makes me crazy.

I have a very wonderful family and support system but this is such a lifestyle change it sucks (sorry) but it does.

Like I said earlier I’m trying to take one day at a time.
