Stuck In My Lazyboy, And I can Touch My Thumb To My Pinky

Had something funny happen this morning, I say funny, though it didn't make me laugh straight out of the gate.  Was sitting in my favorite chair, an old, beat up, lazyboy, that is contoured perfectly to my rear end.  Had my legs up, reading Sherlock Holmes on my kindle, not a care in the world.  I goes to get up and SNAP, the handle breaks off of the chair!  Picture it, feet in the air, can't get out of the chair, and was on my way to the loo!  Should have seen my dismount, worthy of a 10, even from the Russian judge!

You know the test the neuro gives you every time you go to see them, touch your thumb to each one of your fingers, as fast as you can?  It's been some time now since I've been able to touch the ring and pinky finger on my right hand.  Noticed today I can match my thumb to the ring finger full on, and the pinky I can at least touch.  Not sure what it means, or why it happened, but I'm taking it as a sign the diet is helping, pass the kale!

I'm not laughing -- really! But you do paint a good mental image.
My right thumb has been estranged from the other fingers for a long time -- just waiting for a good divorce lawyer!

Muff - You should be laughing, it was hysterical! I stopped driving because I was no longer able to communicate with my right hand.....

Can't count the number of time I reference the "Russian Judge" and youngens stare at me as if am speaking greek.

Well just for you ...

10.0 ... 10.0 ... 10.0

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

Hi: I came across your blog trying to find some one that was doing the Wahl change of life plan ( don`t want to call it a diet) and game across this page. My husband has started the Wahl plan a week ago with my help of course. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing and keep it up.
