It's Monday again and Peter went back into the hyperbaric chamber as he promised to do. He has seven more sessions and we may do another round of ten after that. We had a talk over the weekend and I told him it was silly to come all the way to China and then refuse the therapies. He agreed.
We have been hearing about the shootings in Colorado. Wow. What is going on? We often hear loud explosive sounds around here that seem like gunfire. It isn't though. It's fireworks. They will set them off for anything. A wedding, a store opening, the street cleaned. Anything. Not the beautiful skyward sprays but just noisemakers. Very loud. At first I was alarmed but they don't have guns here. They just don't, so it's festive. Wish it was that way there.
Wong is really wonderful. I get such a kick out of him getting Peter to stand with his "one, two, shree." The English around here can get a little comical. One of the interns works with him on the "standing bed", a contraption that straps him down and then tilts him to a standing position. The intern will repeatedly ask him "do you feel any uncomfortable"? Peter always laughs when I repeat that phrase to him later. Personally, we both think he gets more benefit from Wong's standing sessions with him but Peter humors them. I think this is one therapy we will cut out. He doesn't need it anymore. This Dr. "do you feel any uncomfortable" takes this thing very seriously and wants us to continue it. Phffft!
