Don't Stand Up

My old motto used to be - don't stand if you can sit down - don't sit down if you and lay (lie?) down. (I feel a teacher flip over in her grave).

My latest Physical Therapist, Alex, certainly has turned that idea on its head. Up, up, and away. Use bed only for afternoon naps and night. Get into that wheelchair, over to that rocker, now go, go - use that walker. He is only here 45 min. or so. The effects of his visits are timeless. I know this is up to my body, the swelling in my brain and, yes, my attitude. He tells me it is normal to have good days and bad.

Today was a good day!!

I don't know even what a blogger is. I'm searching the net because my son's close friend, also my close friend's son, has a horrible cancer and I'm looking for family guidance. Thank you on your show of courage, and the healing power of creativity. Keep it up and good luck.
