Weeks and months

I don't know if I have already written this, but the most chilling phrase I have ever read about ALS was on a page from a medical textbook my local neurologist photocopied for me. The phrase was small and simple: "As the weeks and months pass..." It sends horror through me. If I notice a progression of symptoms on the scale of weeks and months, then I may not have long to live. If, on the other hand, I can go a year with no significant progression, then the doctors who painted the rosy scenario in So, You're Going To Die! may be right.

In Hawaii I noticed what I think is an increased stiffness in my left hand. But I am not sure. Maybe it was like that already. As the weeks and months pass, we shall see.
