It's truly the "little" things that make me happy these days. Clementines; so little and sweet! I love fresh fruit but hadn't been able to enjoy much of it since the CVA. Although I recovered enough to lose my lopsided smile, I continued and still do with some paralysis in my face and mouth that biting into large or hard things like sandwiches and apples, was painful (I'd end up biting my lip or tongue, or both.) Also, many other fruits require the work of two hands before reaping the benefits which meant that I was dependent upon the help of others in order to eat things like oranges when I wanted. However, I asked hubby to buy some clementines last week and discovered that I am capable of peeling them one-handed; now I can eat one whenever I want, without having to wait until someone else is available to help me! Yahoo! Although clementines are "little" things, this is a HUGE achievement for me!
For those of you who've been following my story...I've had a sleep study done but won't know the results until I meet with my doctor, tomorrow. For now I continue to take naps when I feel the need. I do love sleep and on these cold wintry days, I equally love the cuddly warmth of my bed and down-filled comforter.
