I'm going home from hospital today because progress in recovering from last month's stroke is surprisingly good, almost walking again- my respect for two-year olds has risen enormously: how do they learn to walk with only us parents for teachers and no physiotherapists?!
will be off the air until I get internet established at new home, please do keep those flash fiction entries coming, can't wait to read those already received, awesome titles they have.
Having a stroke (which I'm glad to see you are overcoming swimingly, Pat) is a bit like having Multiple Sclerosis, which I have to deal with. Every now and again a part of my body (arms, legs, face, memory) decides to take a mini (and sometimes painful) vacation for days or sometimes weeks, depending on stress levels and external forces. But, I take comfort in knowing that with Recurrent/Remitting M.S. I will eventually recover the use of the vacated part(s), with hardly any noticeable depreciation. My most favorite times are when I remember where I left that forgotten tool from last year's gardening project, or where I left my uncashed tax return check. That's always fun.
