One happy dod now back in her bed!
Meds taken - I need to double check that it is okay to have a banana close to the PD med, someone was writing about this recently.
So much that I learn here - ie a useful reminder to take meds with at least a whole glass of water.
I changed from sinemet plus because the oval tabs kept breaking as I took them from their packaging. My GP and Parmacist say these Co-Careldopa have exactly the same ingredients. Gus believes they release diff at diff times. Will need to check.
I think they are having the same affect. But do intend to return to making brief daily noes on the state of my boy, mind and spirit! I think it was last Thursday evening my ankles really hur because they were so ight and I kept doing stretches. Then there was a day when I fell asleep late morning and took the pd med 2 hourrs late! Since then the ankles have been a lot better. Who knows what really causes what ...
.I have a friend staying and asked her to take a video on my phone of me walking. I wanted to see my posture. I watched it and wept! I just do not walk tall, but seem to remember I was a bit round shoulder in my youth. Finding the energy and motivation to do all the eercises I need is hard work. I have just done ten stretches - standing on my toes and then on my heels. The foot clinic told me that the 2 toes which have gone rigidly bent are in this state because of the PD!! Muscles and ligs in my left calf not working so well affecting my toes!! Oh yes and on the video my left arm just was no swinging - I thought it had been getting better.
Dog walking is wonderful exercise. I never let her off the lead - not confident - but this friend does and I do believe she is the fastest dog in the park and has taken to leaping through the flower beds!!! We found a wild flower meadow and she had a wonderful romp.
Now, I think it is time for me to have another sleep - this is somehing I do - another hour then on with the day!!
Wishing you and yours a lovely day and thanks for your response - it is good to get some feedback,
