Hot and summery here (but not humid, and no mosquitoes). The kids ran through the sprinkler. I have a gimpy strain in the outer left ligament between the thigh and the cal (at the knee), but I do not think it is ALS-related. I now have a theory about what caused the cramp in my calf. I had been doing those stretches for my ankle mobility fervently, and you wouldn't think a stretch would exercise the muscle (or I wouldn't), but on further reflection, the calf muscle stays clenched during that whole stretch. So I have become last fanatical about it now. The ankle flexibility is restored, though I still find it hard to order the foot to flex up to its maximum extent. Not impossible, just hard.
