Something was bothering Ryan all morning yesterday. Even now, I can’t determine a cause. He sat with his left leg completely straightened-out in spasm. His thigh muscle (quad) was working so hard I could feel the heat through his pants from the energy the muscle was burning. He sat like this for hours and hours.
Nothing seemed to work for more than a minute or so to stop the spasm. Finally, in one of occasional good decisions, I put him on the floor and stretched his entire body — head to toe — for 2 ½ hours. It worked! He was comfortable the remainder of the day.
Myself, on the other hand, well… I lost all feeling in my legs from sitting on the floor. Naturally, this is when the dogs, without the courtesy of even a warning yelp, decided they couldn’t wait another second to be taken outside.
Resulting from the FDA medicine recall scare the day before, I took the time to subscribe my Google Reader to get daily updates of drug recalls. This is crucial because it affords me the opportunity to be scared senseless even sooner.
