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 !

your handling the chemo really well! Congrads on the two handed typing! You might have this thing slowed down to a slow crawl hopefully!!! Enjoy your sleep! I had to do a day in bed today :-( Sleep is sooooo helpful! Enjoy the asian market, wish I knew where to go here in Atlanta.
