It's Over

And just like that, it's gone.

DH's symptoms progressed since Wednesday night, making him very hard to understand this weekend. His left leg was buckling with every step. But we kept with the strategy of not "babying" him and having him just work through it.

Amazingly . . .

it has seemed to work!

He came home from work today actually better than he was yesterday. And by the time I came home from Hebrew School tonight, he was about 98% back to normal.

DH is now able to lift his left leg up normally. His knee comes up to the same height as his right one. The fingers on his left hand move apart as far as the ones on his right. His smile is almost not lopsided anymore.

We still have no idea why it sarted again, but we're so glad it's almost over!

This is just unbelievable. Maybe it's some crazy allergic reaction to something he's eaten that you have connected yet? Or maybe it's stress? I know you're shaking your head; I certainly am. Perhaps now that he knows he can beat it without drastically altering his life (going to the hospital, physical therapy, etc.), then maybe it will just go away. Regardless, I am SO happy that he's feeling better.
