I am learning that the inability to sleep for several nights in a row has a very large and direct impact on my ability to walk.
This morning the chicken walk as appeared for the first time in 2 years. I have fully taken for granted how well my mobility has held up. I have taken for granted how good I’ve been feeling. And I was pretty smug about the lack of new white spots on my most recent MRI.
As I hobble the 5 feet from the coffee pot to the table, precariously grasping a HOT cup of coffee, my prayer for the day is that this is a temporary situation. So temporary that by 8 AM it will have resolved itself. There are too many meetings this morning with powers that be for my body to be rebelling against me.
In other news, it’s almost time to hit the road. I’m very excited to see my family again! It’s very hard to go 6 months between visits.
