cerobit's Journal, 22 March 2013

Since my brain tumor biopsy-hemmorhage back on Nov. 16, I have been in rehab, in various forms. My left arm started totally flaccid, and has been progressively better since, except for a tremor, occasionally. Most folks probably wouldn't notice, until I try to do fine motor things with my fingers.

Well, during my 6am Rx drug 'ingestion', my left hand 'felt' normal for the first time since the stroke. I didn't have to think about and command it to cup and roll the pills into it, from the pill box. It easily unscrewed the top off of two pill jars. ones that are difficult for my good right hand , even.

One observation, is that I slept w/ my CPAP last night, so maybe deeper sleep and more neural connectivity/growth?

Also, typed this normally, w/ BOTH hands. hard to do, Leftie is tired, but it's progress.

So, happy dance !
