That is me in my room-14Th floor-we have a great view-there is mountain range in the far right of the picture, you can wee the slant of the hill-there will be more to come-excuse the appearance this was taken after I got back from Acupuncture hell!!
When they show you the needle that goes into your back, you don't need the gas to put you asleep-you faint right then and there!
It is 6 inches long-fortunately I got put to sleep. They wheel you from you suite to a room that reminded me of the X-files episode. It was set way in the corner of the hospital and it had electric doors that made a swoosh sound! I thought I would run into Agents-Mulder and Scully!! Anyway-they curled me up like a ball to stretch my vertebrae and they gassed me up and from there I do not know anything that went on except that my back was sore from that needle. And to boot I had to lie completely still for 6 hours. You know me, I could not sit still for ten minutes-it was brutal. But I came through and this morning I felt sore but otherwise fine. Then came 10am and I was brought to the acupuncture chamber of hell. I endured being in hell for a half hour but Andra was there so she took my mind off it. There has been no change yet in my speech or right arm although I am walking with more balance-that is a good sign.
They say nothing major happens till 48 hours. So pray as I will do the same.
Otherwise life in China is good. Andra and I went to Sea World-where there are a lot of westernized restaurants. We picked "The California steak house". I had fillet-it was a flank steak folded over and made to look thick like a fillet-I needed a buzz saw to cut it. I should have had the rib eye like Andra. A friend of mine said, she had a friend that went to china and she lived on PB and J. Well that seems like the logical choice now that I know the food in China is deceitful!!! I even found Skippy peanut butter.
In closing-Thank You so much for replies both on the blog and emails. It touches my heart every time my phone buzzes and it's family and friends telling me to "keep strong". KEEP THEM COMING
You guys are incredible!!!!!!!
"Darkness has a hunger that's insatiable and lightness has a call that's hard to hear" SO LISTEN MORE!!!
