incident was the evening my mom died, it too was a shock, this sudden stroke. my
mom and i used to watch tv in the evening at times when my husband was gone to
bed early for work. i would lay on her bed next to her so she could reach my leg
to message it. we never knew why my leg would get such bad knots, now i know ,
probably was my diabetes diagnosed later on. that was our ritual at any rate,
and oh how i appreciated it. well, as you have probably guessed already, that
night of my dear mothers death, i was again lying on my stomach and i felt my
mother message my leg. the right leg. the same leg. the difference was it felt
so cold. again, i tried like hell to wake my husband and couldn't which was
disturbing me. when i couldn't i finally turned around this time , but didn't
see anything, but i knew. the next night the exact same thing happened and i
looked quicker this time but still could not see anything, but definitely felt
my mothers hand message my leg.
