At the Cottage
It's been a gorgeous weekend at the cottage: sunny and around 30. The sun is shining off the bay and the fresh breeze makes me think that maybe I'll get my sailboat out on our next trip out here... and last summer it looked like that would be my last summer of sailing... it's great to be alive! I'm glad that I'm not much affected by heat anymore. And no, that's not because of "liberation", it's just something that improved in my second year after being diagnosed, about the same time that my weakness and footdrop shifted from the right side of my body to my left. The increased energy, though, could be due to the treatment. I worked on the steps to the beach, mowed the lawn and did some other chores. Though far from feeling "normal", I didn't get tired just thinking about doing those things. Our friends and neighbours here seem to agree with my wife that I look better - better colour and "brighter".
