Sixty Finished

I have completed the sixty treatments that I signed up for. People are asking me if I'm better and the truth is that I'm not sure. I still need pain medicine every single day, and I'm still tired out by minimal activity. Pressure points still hurt. My thinking seems clearer, and I think my sleep is deeper.

On the other hand, for the first time in memory, I had a nightmare last week. I don't remember the content, but I woke up Yaakov and grabbed him. (He says. I remember nothing.)
I've also had some small muscle tremors lately, but I have no idea what caused them. They seem to be related to extreme exhaustion (which is my default state).

I will have an MRI in around two weeks. After that, I will meet with Doctor Efrati to determine what happens next. 

I think that there's a possibility that 1. things will continue to improve. 2. there has been some underlying improvement, but 14 years of clenched muscles, poor sleep, low exercise, etc have taken their toll and I may need some rehab. 

In any case, I'm not done with hope. Keep reading!
