Yesterday on my walk with Abbey we had some excitement. On our way home we spotted some kids lighting a grass fire and called 911. Though small when I made the call it could have spread along a railway ditch into a residential area. When the fire deportment had nearly extinguished it I walked over and talked to one of the firemen. He said it was a good call, they'd rather get the fire out while small then have to put out a large fire.
The police had arrived with the fire unit and talked to a security person at some low rentals nearby who had come after I made my call but saw the kids as they ran away after hearing the sirens. I believe the RCMP were going to have a chat with the kids.
The after effects of the TIA still seem to be affecting my leg movement. Though I'm still highly mobile They seem stiff to move. Hopefully the brain will reroute the circuitry and fix that. The human body is an amazing piece of engineering. It can fix mobility but the senses are left broken.
My neurologist told me it was a survival technique. He said if you can see you can still run, but if you can't move your eaten.:)
