Sunless, Cloudy, Hot, Muggy Sunday.

Joan Erbe.

It was difficult typing yesterday, more difficult then I ever experienced before, the index finger had no strength, it went floppy so I had to type with my left thumb.

It took hours for me to write 200 words, something that usually I get written in 30 to 40 minutes not 4 hours like last night.

Very frustrating, fortunately I have the appointment with Herman this Thursday to try out Seetech, software controlled by eye movements.

Dragoon voice recognition software and Seetech will be how I shall be able to keep writing, keep in touch with friends and feel in touch with world news.

It is worrying noticing that my hand function is getting weaker, I need to be realistic and not fight the progression.

Instead I am going to use anthing I can to help me being able to keep using my laptop, that is something I need to do..

As long as I have any hand/finger function I shall use my hands, good to use everything I can use.

I intend to keep doing my arm exercise for as long as it is possible for me to do, even with Richie’s help.

It’s good to keep going for as long as I can.

A very moving entry. Currently am learning the names of each finger with my son, mostly through singing a song.
Wishing you all strength, patience and a good start into the new week as well.
