    I've lost a lot of sensation in my feet and legs, makes things like walking a challenge, also kind of hard to know what I'm stepping on. So, I'm sewing tonite, put my foot back on the foo tpedal to resume stitching, my machine won't go, tap it a few more times, still no go. Getting very annoyed by this time (doesn't take long--my sewing room is hot). Tapped a little more aggressively.........the dog finally got up and moved.

    Funny-about the dog, of course, not MS. My SIL has had it for quite awhile and has some very bad days.
    Then again, I guess the dog didn't think it was funny.

    Hope most of your days are good.

    You must have a very patient dog.

    I can laugh too, with you. I'm going to a quilt retreat with my SIL next week up in northwestern Wyoming. My BIL has had MS for 10+ years and it's a struggle, but he does awesome things!
