Starting on a sad note. Last year, on Easter Sunday, my older brother died of ALS. The date was April 8, so do I mourn his death on Easter or April 8? Either way it's a sad day.
On a happier note, we take our tandem bicycle training on Thursday. It's a two hour training program one-on-one so they must be something special about riding a tandem. I notice that the Stoker, the person on the back, has nothing to do except sit on the bike and pedal. So the majority of the training is clearly for the Captain, the person on the front.
My husband and I went riding outside yesterday, nearly 17 miles, the first outside ride of the year. I barely made it home going uphill. Clearly, a great deal of work needs to be done before I ride with my son for 200 miles! I felt pretty horrible the rest of the day. I'm not sure if it was due to riding the bike, or to the newly doubled dose of galantamine. I stay on this dose for a month and then have it raised by one third. So I go from 8 mg to 16 mg to 24 mg for the last month of the test. I'm feeling better today. I plan to ride a 20 mile route tomorrow. Hope I make it. I'm sure I will.
Best to everyone.
