We arrived in Charleston.
A disappointing start to our adventure–the ickiest of hotels (think stale smoke in a non-smoking room; oily mysterious substance (salad dressing?) on the bedside table; mouldy shower curtain; hole punched in bathroom door…I could go on). The sad thing was that 95% of guests recommended it! Oh, and our luggage was lost! Welcome to West Virginia!
Moving on…we toured the capital building (because that is what I do when I visit a capital).
We arrived at our destination and found a great hotel (a taxing experience for sure…small town West Virginia doesn’t offer a huge selection of hotels.)
Treatment started Monday. A thorough assessment indicated significant vision loss (which we were aware of) and then right into acupuncture. Meg elected to start with laser. Apparently this technique isn’t quite as effective as needles, but it’s a good gradient. Tuesday we transitioned into full needles. We are 10 treatments in
And a couple of barbie dolls in (who says bribery doesn’t help overcome pain?) Seriously though, it was a tough transition for Meg. The needles sting at the moment of insertion. The doctor tried them on me so I could have first hand understating of the process. Thank you to all our supporters who cheered us on from afar. It made a difference.
this is working mom! I can read your cell phone now…
Two days ago she couldn’t decipher the caller id! So for now we are hopeful.
Back at it tomorrow…
