Difficult Wednesday

     Wednesday was one of Boo's more difficult days.  I woke Boo, went through our usual morning routine and made sure he was ready for a routine visit to his primary care doctor.  He complained that his legs felt weak, but seemed to walk normally---albeit more slowly than usual.  By the time Boo saw the doctor, he was obviously walking very slowly and complaining that his knees and legs felt weak.  His doctor eliminated another medication and examined him.  (OK, not in that order.)  Because Boo didn't want to be admitted to the hospital for observation, we went home with orders to report to the hospital immediately if his leg weakness worsened or if it had not improved this morning.  Boo slept Wednesday afternoon, woke for supper and a western, slept again until time for his bedtime medication, talked to Boudreaux for a little while and slept all night. 
     This morning Boo woke and did some gentle stretching exercises, ate breakfast and took his medication.  Then he announced that he was taking a walk before it got too hot.  I called one of my cousins to ensure that she'd be able to bring us back home if Boo overestimated his abilities.  Boo walked four blocks with no problems.  He did walk more slowly than usual.  Just what was going on yesterday?  I really don't know.  All I know for sure is that things seem to be back to normal.
