SLOWLY getting better

The “bookcase” back in my classroom/workroom/study is slowly beginning to together. I am pre-assembling all of it out in the garage and when I get help I will bring them in the study where I am putting it all together.

I have I been able to SLOWLY empty a couple of file cabinets. I have tossed tons of hard copies that I no longer need. I am SLOWLY moving books, DVDs, video takes, tons of history materials, and lots of stuff I use from time to time. I can begin to toss tons of materials that I have stored for years and years and years.

I have filled our trash cans twice now and will fill them again this week. It may not look like it but I can see the end coming SLOWLY and I can get things ready for a bright future. From the outside it may not look like much but I can see a deference being made.

My PT is going well even though I have now loss both nurses that have worked with me from the start. One graduate and moved back home to north Louisiana and the other was moved to a new department for her next rotation within the hospital. But I can tell that things are getting much BETTER even though it is not fast enough to suit me.

I am walking better – without a cane – except when we go out someplace. I like having it as a “backup” just in case. I have been a few places without it and I walk around the house without it. Right now I am not even sure where it is!

My typing is getting better. I am typing this with 8 fingers – five on my right hand and three on my left. The left still does not work great but it is not hitting the wrong keys at least!

I have cut the grass on my riding lawnmower and weed-eaten most of the yard. I have done all of this without my cane but with my brace/boot. Hey, it is a step in the right direction.

Back to my study and my bookcases. I have painted the wall and gotten everything ready for the final bookcases for this afternoon when I get some help bringing them in –I am not making that mistake again.
I am no longer trying to RUSH things!


  1. Yay for all your progress! I know it's still frustrating on a day-to-day basis, but look at how far you've come!

  2. I am glad things are moving forward, both you and the bookcase. It is a good time to reorganize your teaching files. Keep rehabbing and progressing. :)
