I am over the top, I did something today with my left hand and I actually did it and had success! To give some background- I had to go have bloodwork done this morning, so I have the folded up gauze and white tape on my arm. The tape started to come loose on one end and kept catching the hairs on my arm. OWWWW! So I was talking on the phone.......and I jerkily raised my left hand up and pinched the tape between my forefinger and thumb and ripped the tape off, all by using my left hand, not my arms at all. I was thrilled I yelled at the person I was on the phone with. I happened to be talking to Jim. So there is my news, I am celebrating tonight with wine I think.

Man, Pam, this is wonderful!!! You ought to call that PT friend of yours and get some exercises to help you ride this wave and help what is occurring naturally come back even faster. Those nerves and muscles are firing again! So cool!

Great job Pam, my physical therapist had me sort jelly beans from a large jar into 6 paper cups by color...you could also sort M&M's, had me do it with the left hand...and it really helped with the fine motor control.

GOOD LUCK & CONGRATULATIONS Clap-Hands.gifClap-Hands.gif

since it was PT in an office and jelly beans handled by many (even with gloves) I didn't eat them..but at home you could..lol

Great!. Funny how the brain does its thing when it wants to. Sometimes you don't even realize it.

 

With me in stead of jelly beans, they used therapy clay (it comes in different consistencies but actually any clay would do). They put items in it like beans, split peas, beads etc and you use the hand to knead it to get the item out. The trouble was they never knew how many were there and you really didn't know if you missed a pea. I do like Bonnie's jelly beans division- especially when you can eat them. Favorite color first or last?

Pam,

How wonderful and exciting. Before you know it maybe you'll even be typing with both hands. You go girl!! It never ceases to amaze me how time and effort work so well. Just when I think that's it, something new pops up. I'm so happy for you. pash.gif
