After experiencing some ripples lately, I am once again enjoying the calm waters. With each loss I experience, usually brings with it a time of mourning the losses I am going through at that particular moment. The cooler weather seems to magnify the spasticity which makes movement of hands and legs harder to control.
This week we are replacing our existing shower with a barrier free shower which will allow easier access in and out if the shower eliminating the need to step up into the shower. I cannot lift my legs that high anymore. Thanks to Graybill Plumbing and Danny Fisher for installing the new shower. Even though this is another change, it is a positive change and will be a blessing for me and Emy. Some of the things I never thought about and took for granted, have now become monumental issues. Never take anything for granted, it could change at anytime.
Right now I have a caregiver come twice a week to do range of motion exercises with me. It is supposed to help keep my joints loose and stretch my muscles to help eliminate the spasticity in my arms and legs. It seems to be helping, I think.
