Christmas Eve...
Waiting for the coffee to brew and listening to the Watson household sounds of silence.  Thought briefly about heading out for a walk/jog but really need to take at least one and probably two days of rest.  Should be following my own advice and not listen to my endorphin addicted body!
The furnace comes on intermittently over powering the other quieter sounds that reach me from all corners of the house.  Somewhere upstairs there is a television on...I could hear unfamiliar voices garbled through the floor.  Lola's tags jingled briefly, she is asleep with Zack in the "Man" cave the boys constructed where there should be a dining room.  
David just made an appearance.  He is having a fierce allergy attack.  He tried to go back to sleep when I got up but his sinuses are not cooperating.  He is in the office typing away as well.  So, one more sound to add to the sounds of the silence.
David is getting stronger, more range of motion in his left arm and shoulder. Walking around very well.  I was asking him about what it is like trying to hold the weight bar at the gym, or anything in his left hand.  He described holding onto things as an effort...that the entire time he is thinking, "hold, hold, hold."  AND it isn't just holding it is anything that he wants to do with the affected side... ANYTHING to do with talking as well.  He is working so hard, I am so proud of him.
I have drank my vitamin concoction so onto the coffee, Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
