Duke and the New Normal
At a school choir event last night, a regular reader of the Hobbled Runner inquired about Duke. Thanks for your interest! Duke is fine. His Masticatory Myositis doesn’t seem to impact his quality of life. At least it doesn’t impact it more than his seizures, or thyroid conditions, or old age. The Myositis doesn’t seem to be spreading or getting worse, so it appears to be part of the “new normal” for Duke. Having said that I’ll spend more time petting Duke and checking other parts of his body for muscle atrophy, though I suspect that would make itself evident in difficulty walking and generally controlling his body.
