HBOT -Day 20

I have finished my block of 20 hyperbaric oxygen treatments for now. The recommended standard treatment for this therapy is 40 hours (this doesn't mean that you will  be cured in 40 hours, it means that it works best if done in blocks of 40), and I can kind of see why. I have started to notice that my eye sight is getting to be pretty good I think, I can hold my eyes nice and straight to look at things and even to follow them when they move. There is no way anyone can sneak into the room with out me knowing now! Mummy thinks that my pupils seem to be bigger in general now. My digestion is really good too, new and different foods don't seem to bother me as much now and yes, the dirty nappies are still pretty good!

My swimming teacher noticed that I was moving my right arm with excitement in the pool the other day and I am much more vocal than I used to be. I let her know that I am not finished with that pool noodle thank you!

It will  be sad for a while to not go for treatments. Stuart and Paul from Hyperbaricworx are always really happy to see me and excited to hear what I have been up to. But I will be happy for the rest for now. I am sure we will go back for more- hopefully towards the end of the year.

HBOT- Day 18 & 19

Hello Friends! I am getting to be a professional hyperbaric-ee. I hop in and away we go. Everyone has noticed that I have been watching TV more while I am in the chamber. My eye sight seems to definately be better. I only have one more session in the chamber on Thursday 16th June. Then we will wait and see where therapies take me next :)

HBOT, Days 13, 14, 15, 16 & 17

Phew, those last few sessions flew by. Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day!! Some days I cried.... Why do you have to get four 2 year old molars at the same time? It makes me miserable and I just don't want to do anything. Other days it was so good I went to sleep! It is so nice and warm in the chamber and I get cuddles for an hour. Just me and Mummy or me and Daddy.

I seem to have plateaued skill wise. I haven't noticed any new progressions. My eye sight is better than it used to be I think, I am still hungry all the time and the dirty nappies have dropped off slightly. There are still more than before I started this treatment though.

Most of the time I reach 100% oxygen saturation and my heart rate isn't as high as it used to be. I am more relaxed.

I only have 3 more sessions to go and then I will have a break for a while and decide what I am going to do next.

All settled now and watching tv
