I’m happy to announce that my Christmastime novella, Holly’s Homecoming, has released! I am a tad behind in getting the word out, because I am in the hospital for rehab. I have one more week to go and am looking forward to getting home. I am gaining a little strength and getting some more practical ways on how to better manage in my home with my MS.
I am on the verge of needing in-home assistance, but my doctor wanted to try rehab, so I can be as independent as possible. The stay has also helped pinpoint another issue that has cropped up, due to atrophy in my spinal cord–where I have the most MS lesions.
I have had dramatic episodes where my blood pressure will spike into the extreme danger zone. Other causes have been ruled out, and I am now diagnosed with autonomic dysreflexia, a condition people with spinal cord injuries often get, involving mixed up and false nerve signals to the body’s autonomic nervous system. I am glad to have some answers and way to treat symptoms when they occur. Left untreated, the BP spikes can lead to a heart attack.
