damned if you do, and damned if you don't


Robb was having a rough day last Saturday, and other than a visit to the vet, spent the bulk of the day in bed. The next day, he told me that he thought he was "paying the price for laying low." He was particularly troubled by muscular spasticity on Sunday.

Despite this, he and I biked twenty-one miles. We really exerted ourselves, physically. And the next day, Robb was completely wiped out. He was barely able to lift his feet off the floor on Monday night.

We're still trying to find the balance between these two extremes.

Two months ago Robb was wiped out after riding 12 miles. Today it was 21 miles. Next month ???.

You can't find a balance between the two extremes until you find out where the extremes are. And so long as those extremes keep moving . . . cool!

I'm telling you, muscular spasticity is a GOOD THING- keep repeating this to yourself, then come over to our place and we will stick paintbrushes in both Robb's hands (and onto his feet if need be) and let him go wild. We still have 1 room in the house to paint left, and will do anything at this point to get it done. (6 months this Oct 1st!), and still got boxes around, can you believe it.

Besides, 21 miles would kick my ass on a bike, I don't know how you guys even got off the bikes and up 3 floor of stairs when done, I would have simply fallen off onto the doorway and just laid there for a couple of days till my breathing returned.
