The daily fight and sleepless nights

Well it’s another wild and crazy night here at Casa del Desormeaux!!😎😎 Not really, it’s just a typical night of waking up in pain and then not being able to fall back asleep. The bad news is I haven’t been getting a whole lot of sleep. 😴😴😴 The good news is I have a ton of time for random activities😎😁 like updating everyone about El Chapo McRib.

I really don’t have a lot to update everyone on, other than what it’s been like to fight El Chapo McRib every day. 💪🏻🥊🥊 I'll tell you he has a terrible sense of humor and loves to make the smallest job seem like climbing Mount Everest, 🧗🏻‍♂️ pretty much every day from the time I wake up until I doze off for a siesta. 😴 💤

 

I still have quite a bit of pain in my ribs. I’m not sure how long it takes for nine or 10 fractured ribs to heal, but I sure do wish they would stop being lazy and heal on up!🤞🏻🙏🏻 Plus the snapping and cracking feeling kind of freaks me out sometimes. It’s like "oh there goes another one or maybe that little guy just felt like stretching." 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️ Who knows. 👍🏻 It’s always a gamble 🎲🃏🎰at this point.

 

I’m not sure how the song goes, but I’m pretty sure the “rib bone is connected to the back bone.” I say that because when my ribs feel like saying “HELLO” don’t do that, my back feels left out and says “HEY OH” I’m over here too. 😬😬 Usually they like to play this silly game when I'm trying to walk, move something or just use the restroom 🚽🚹🚺 where they will lock up and pretty much take my breath away. 😲😫 It usually passes after the longest four or five seconds of my life. 🙀 Not really sure why, but starting a couple days ago, I’ve had a nerve in my back that’s decided to join in on the party.🕺🏻💃🍸 He stays on my right side and likes to lock up my lower back and right butt cheek. 😳😬 I’m sure there’s a medical term for said nerve, but I’ll just say “the pain is really getting on my nerves.” 😎😎

 

For the time being, I’m still using my back brace and walker to get around. Every day has been a little easier to get around without the walker. I do notice I get pretty sore if I’m up and moving around for long periods of time. 🕘🕗 Hopefully next week I can start physical therapy. That’s the plan, anyway. 🧔🏻🏋🏻‍♀️🏊🏼‍♂️

 

Now I’m just waiting on 5 a.m. to roll around so I can head to Houston for an 8 a.m. chemo ☣️☢️ treatment followed by another one tomorrow morning. 😋😋 Thank God I have a personal Uber driver who 🧔🏻🚕🚙feels sorry for me and insists on driving me there. It’s reason #107 that continues to amaze and humble me about my situation! The amount of help and support has been nothing short of a blessing in its truest form. I thank God every day for blessing me with such love and support. No matter how bad the pain gets, it can’t exceed the power and support I get from knowing how many people have helped me make it this far through the process.

 

Even though I feel like I’m still in the pre-game warm ups in this fight, I’m prepared to go any distance to beat El Chapo McRib into submission. 👊🏻💪🏻😎

 

“Will it be easy? Nope. Worth it? ABSOLUTLEY!” 🇺🇸

 

God bless everyone! HE>i
