I had another great day!!!! I was able for the first time in three years to have Calvin drop me off somewhere and be able to drive away. He drove me to the cottage on the beach where my daughter and son-in-law were staying, visited for a while and then drove to town to run some errands. I had my portable oxygen, which lasts for about 4 hours. The cottage had a huge bay window looking out into the Straight of Juan de Fuca. We sat in front of a roaring fireplace and visited as we saw Victoria, Canada across the bay and watched the ships as they passed.
I realized, however, that although I did not have that horrible fog I had been experiencing any longer, I still have issues with exercise intolerance. Just talking for a while and then having a snack proved to be too much, I went into arrhythmia and become weak, but I avoided paralysis. I had to be very careful after that, however.
Calvin told me later, that other than leaving me in the hospital a few times, it was the first time in three years he felt he could leave me like that. He said he felt sad driving away, but he knew I was in good hands and it was good for him and him to do that.
My visitors must leave today, I will miss them very much, but I will get back to my "work" of teaching the world about Periodic Paralysis.
Today, I want to share an article I wrote a few months ago.
We now have written and published four books related to Periodic Paralysis.
