Today was another busy, busy day. This morning Jeremy had his “share your story” appointment with the TBI clinic. It was to tell what had happened six years and what has happened since then. Jeremy explained how he slipped on a freshly waxed floor six years ago and hit his head. He explained about how he falls asleep as soon as his relaxes (even when he doesn’t want to fall asleep) and how he zones out often. After talking about everything the TBI doctors are starting to think that this isn’t a TBI thing but symptoms of extreme sleep exhaustion and a deficiency of Vitamin D. I feel this could a good thing. Sleep exhaustion and vitam d deficiency are fixable. Jeremy is happy because he thinks he can get out of the TBI clinic sooner and get his clearances done faster with this diagnosis. Jeremy just wants to get to Japan. I want him to get better first.
After that appointment we went to IPAC. I’m officially in the system now as Jeremy’s wife!!! We started my tricare. We went by naval to get my paperwork to start my clearances but instead ended up with an appointment to come back tomorrow. Its for the same time as Jeremy’s third EEG so I get to try feeling this stuff out on my own.
This afternoon we had Jeremy’s second EEG. Again I’m not sure how it went since I had to stay out in the lobby and Jeremy, again, didn’t say much. We should have the results back next week hopefully.
When we came home I was exhausted. I had meant to lay down for about 30-40 minutes. 3 hours later I finally woke up feeling very hung over. Jeremy let me sleep through my alarm because he knew I needed the sleep.
I want to thank all of y’all for your comments today. I wish I could respond to each of them as they come in but it is all based on if I have internet connection. Spending the last two days on base has meant I don’t have access to the internet until I’m home. Being on base blocks my cell service so my phone is useless during these appointments while I sit in the waiting room. I promise that if you do comment on my blog, you will get a response. Just please understand that sometimes it may be a few hours until I have the ability to do so. I love y’all’s comments. They definitely brighten my day!
