The most important change is in my pain level. Since about Mid July I have been living on a custom topical agent that I have formulated by my pharmacist. If I don't keep my mouth constantly numb I have intense pain that is hard to describe. I guess my best description is that it feels like someone is driving an ice pick through my ear into my tongue. Not pleasant at all. Speaking and eating add to the pain. So, I live on Ibuprophen and Tylenol taken by the clock combined with my topical applied every two hours day and night. Around dive 18 I noticed that I could go a little longer before running for my topical. Next I started skipping ibuprophen doses when I was too busy to take them and... surviving. Last night I woke up when the pain woke me and I thought "I could almost bear this without medication" but then I got up and took some anyway because I am a wimp. Anyway, I am getting better and....I AM SO HAPPY! I love hyperbaric therapy!

I am grateful to live when I do and to have such miraculous treatments available. My tongue and ear are grateful too.
My dear little grand daughter has begun to walk. She is so proud of herself. I am so grateful to be alive to watch the miracle of her little life unfold.
