Today is the day for which this blog is named. At fifty-one years and nine months, ALS took my mother and created this horizon for me.
I don't have ALS. (I think. I hope.) I have not spent the last two years struggling with the loss of one ability after another, first clear speech, then swallowing, breathing, the working of limbs.
I have my health, my voice (raspy as it is from a recent respiratory infection). I am ambulatory. I have not reached the caps on my health insurance.
Now the question is:
What will I do with these abilities, these blessings, as I cross Horizon 51?
