NanaFebruary 19, 2016 at 6:36 PMCameron you write very well. I look forward to all of your blogs. Love you Buddy.
I am just adding some more events that happened when l was in the hospital. One of the theories that Dr. Curry thinks why I'm having so many withdrawal symptoms at this time period of my life is because, I am getting bigger and there's so many things that are happening in my body. Also after a few days I got discharge from the hospital, my mom noticed that I was writing faster. In fact, the last blog that I wrote about took me only about four hours, and of course I took a break for lunch, but my mom said, "that it would've taken me that time to just write half of it"! I also think why I'm writing so quick is because, I'm already thinking of a blog to do and plotting the order of the correct sentence placement, and making sure that each sentence flows correctly, all before I go to bed! The only problem in doing this is that, I'm going to sleep at 12:00 p.m almost every night now because I can't stop thinking about writing! I think that I have an addiction to writing! Which is so rare! Also during power soccer practice, my team kicked bootay when we did a scrimmage. The other team got kind of frustrated because they hardly ever got to our side, but they still tied us. I was still a little bit drowsy that day from all of the medicine they were giving me in the E.R. But my dad said that I played awesome. By the way, my dad is a coach now. Anyway, I had a crazy two weeks and hopefully I won't have a withdraw in a long time.
P.S My mother dearest didn't proofread or edit this specific blog at all. It was all my writing!
It all started more than a week ago when l was having a baclofen pump withdrawal. I hate when this happens because my hand and feet get all clammy and it's hard to calm down and I'm just tight all over too and very itchy. What's interesting when I had the withdrawal this time; was that I wasn't sick during it, which usually I'm sick when I have a withdraw. My mom was all weirded out because it was happening AGAIN. I also just got a bump up the day before and an X-ray and blood taken when I went in for a refill from Dr. Dy but after four hours or so, I wasn't calming down and getting looser, so my mom gave me some baclofen pills. The next day my mom decided to take me to the E.R for a CT with dye scan to look if there's any issues with the baclofen pump. I was still drowsy from the oral baclofen pills when we got to the E.R. Anyway some of the doctors and nurses knew me there. The doctors wanted to put an iv on my right arm to take more blood out of me to see if there's baclofen even flowing through my body. Which there was baclofen in my blood. The worst part about taking blood this time, was the placement of the iv. The iv was in my right forearm and I couldn't bend it and when I did bend my arm, it would hurt. But that wasn't the worst part of whole trip to Houston; the worst part was when I went to do the cat scan with dye because the doctors couldn't figure out where was the entrance of my baclofen pump was at! So they kept poking me and to make it worse I was already tender because of the pump refill. Eventually the doctors asked for help from Dr. Curry's (the doctor who put my pump in) assistants to figure it out and they did. Before I went home, the nurse told me that I had to pee, which took me forever before I was finally able to go, because I was starving in Er all day. For some reason I always take forever to go to the bathroom in the hospital. My mom noticed that I eat faster and eat more too and I'm typing faster after I got discharged. I'm about as fast as my mom. Anyway that whole trip was an experience and painful. Now I am feeling a lot better. Sorry, no pictures!
Well, this was my second power soccer tournament in San Antonio. Our team did much better compared to last time. I remember that we only scored one goal against San Antonio and they scored six goals! The second game, we worked much better as a team. I was more agressive and scored a goal. This time, the score was 2 to 1. The only problem is that my chair wasn't fast enough to get close enough to (Jacob) the best player of their team when he was going for goal. The tournament lasted for two days. On the first day, l was all hiped up on Mountain Dew but on the second day l was kinda tired of playing and ready for it to be over! It was a fun weekend and I only got better with all the practice.
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
