More Fingers

Progress is measured slowly on this. I am now able to walk a considerable distance withouta cane, although my therapists are still holding onto a belt just in case.  The little finger on my right hand now twitches.  One unfortunate problem is that if I turn my head to the side and lie down, the room spins and I get nauseated.  I am told this is not an unusual problem after a stroke.  The crystals in the inner ear get misaligned.  There is apparently a therapy that can realign the crystals.  I am waiting for that therapist to be assigned.

I am glad to hear you're making progress.

I've heard of treatments involving crystal realignment, but not typically from genuine medical professionals! Looking forward to catch up whenever I get your room #.

They're probably holding your belt in case you try to make a run for freedom.

It's called the Epley maneuver.
