Pins and Needles

We watched an outdoor production of Macbeth on Monday: I was glad to have seen it but I thought it tactless of him to soliloquize on the theme "she should have died hereafter".

H was troubled by pins and needles in her feet: she's had episodes of this before, particularly when bending her neck, but this was worse.  She suspected a new growth impinging on her spinal cord, and feared imminent paralysis.  The hospital gave her an MRI scan on Tuesday morning, which happily showed no progression and no new spinal lesion.

This may be a side effect of the radiotherapy she had in March - "transient radiation myelopathy".
