It began to snow this morning and is still snowing, but nothing spectacular that means we have no blocked roads and do not have to battle our way through them. Actually the Swiss take it all with comfort: no panic and some are even glad for the snow. “At last some snow”, “it is not a good Winter without the snow” and “now we can go skiing at the week-end” are some of the phrases heard, but these are the real Swiss, not the paper Swiss like me that generally avoid it where I can.
I am again late this morning, but Mr. Swiss decided on an early shopping trip so I had to adapt with an early shower, as I cannot yet do that on my own with my broken leg. Showering in itself is no problem but I cannot get into the bath and out on my own. I manage to get my good leg over the rim of the bath, but the broken one needs some help. Oh, how I long for the day when everything is in full working order.
In the meanwhile my hands are still having problems. I spoke to the lady who organises my medicine, spoke to my doc and had a look in Internet for MS syptoms and it seems this is very common. I did find some exercises I can do, with my hands that help, but nothing cures. The exercises just give me some more movement. In the meanwhile I am getting used to having spaces in my typing where there should be none, and wrong letters appearing. I scatter objects that I drop because my hands refuse to hold them. The most annoying is that I cannot open the Cola bottle on my own and have to call for help from Mr. Swiss. Afterwards lifting the bottle to pour can also be difficult as those plastic bottles are not very stable.
We planned our Easter shopping list yesterday as that is a little difficult. On Thursday before Good Friday I will be at the hospital for a check up on the mending of my leg. This is the day of big shopping, so we have now planned the menus with food we can buy now and what we have to buy later, to reduce the stress. Mr. Swiss will drop me off at the hospital and go shopping and pick me up when he is finished. We have almost 2 weeks to organise it all.
And now to organise my day, although the little bit of housework I can now do has been done and the morning is almost over. Have fun, see you around.
