Another milestone appeared at my bible study…

Are you ready for this?

I don’t raise my RIGHT hand when I yawn!

I will back up for a minute.  When I first hand my stroke, the doctors said it was “normal” to raise my right arm every time I yawned. After 7 years, I sort of gotten used to it.  Even in church last Sunday, I raised my right hand after yawning (please don’t tell Paster Dave). Jill and I both laughed…and one of the congregants saw it and mentioned my hand raising.

Then last Thursday, when I was at my bible study (believe me, it is a coincidence), I yawned and I did NOT raise my right arm!  I don’t know about you, but this a MAJOR deal for me.  I practiced yawning the rest of the evening (when I returned home), and I didn’t raise my hand …ever!  I couldn’t wait to tell Jill about this.  She wanted to wait for the following week to see it was just a fluke.

So I agreed. If it is a fluke, I will edit my email before sending.  If not, you will get this one.

OK, I will say it again:  You don’t know how HAPPY I am; it will be almost 12 years since my stroke and I am STILL improving!!!!!

Side Note:  Did you click on the article that explained why my arm went up when I yawned?  I kept reading it, but got lost in the second sentence. I guess I know why I wasn’t a doctor!
