It looks like the addition of the extra dose of Miralax in a small glass of prune juice is helping with the elimination problems. I’ve also changed from Primidone to Neurontin for the Myoclonus. It doesn’t work quite as well as the Primidone did, but it’s not supposed to have constipation as a severe side effect.
I’ve noticed a lot of inadvertent double letters as I type. My finger just jerks back down without my meaning for it to. I’ve mistakenly double clicked on a lot of things too. So I have a trade off of a little bit of jerking in exchange for a more comfortable elimination process. I’m happy with that trade off. But probably next week, after things are back to normal after Thanksgiving, I will try the Primidone again for a week and see how I do with that. It’s my body, so it will be up to me to decide which result I can live with .
Our daughter had planned on having the Thanksgiving meal at her home, but she and her hubby have been sick with some kind of stomach flu for the last few days. They are still planning on cooking everything, but she didn’t feel like cleaning her house for company. So, we will be having everyone here at our house tomorrow. I’ve worked off and on for the last week cleaning, and I worked more today than I have been able to do in a long time. I’m tired, but it’s a good tired.
It was the Friday after Thanksgiving last year that Daddy fell. We never knew if he had a small stroke or just fell, but he was never the same after that. He died this March at the ripe old age of 102. It’s a momentary sad thought, but he’s no longer trapped in an old man’s body and, after almost 40 years of gradually becoming more and more vision impaired, he’s now seeing some very glorious sites. That wonderful thought keeps this day from being a sad day for me.
We’re looking forward to seeing our whole family together. I have so much to be thankful for.
