Our dusting on Tuesday lasted a few hours...barely sticking to the roof shingles.
By midmorning the sun melted it away, leaving us with brown earth, prickly grasses, moss and leaves, striations of shadows from light masked by trees. Here's an abstract view of the color palette from my window that afternoon:
The image below seemed to want to know what would happen if it were black and white (and grays and silvers of course) so I let it "play pretend". I remember when my girls were little and we watched the old Disney film the "Shaggy Dog," it was in black and white and we had said to the girls that it was a movie from when we were kids. Rosie (probably 5 at the time) was astonished.
Very good news on the healing front. I saw my neurologist yesterday. It seems that the Gabapentin was the culprit. This means that I am on the mend and will start receiving Tysabri infusions again in two weeks...NO PULSE STEROIDS!!!! Risky as the Tysabri is, so far it has done what it was meant to do and my MRI's are stable. So it will be several more weeks until we figure out "where" I land from the whole Gabapentin toxicity situation. I am hopeful that with continued pt I will eventually be more functional around the house soon. Maybe one of these days I'll even start driving a car again. But one gentle step at a time. For now, even if this is it for my recovery plateau, I am so grateful! On Wednesday I walked 1010 feet with my walker, washed dishes for 20 minutes (standing) and folded one load of laundry (sitting). That was HUGE progress. Fatigue haunts me, and hunts me down, but that is to be expected with MS. I've only fallen once in the last two weeks. LIFE IS GOOD!
