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!
