Finally made it home. After 14 hours in the car with mom yesterday. And let me tell you, it feels so good. I’ll be honest though, I am shocked that I survived that drive and I did it without any meds, not even Tylenol. Motivation is everything and I think that is the biggest thing that I have learned over the past 48 hours. Aside from the drive, I haven’t used my wheelchair in over a week, I am off pain medicine completely, last night I climbed the stairs to my bedroom and walked (baby steps) unassisted down the hallway to my very comfortable bed, today I drove my car (oh the freedom!) and took more steps unassisted. Whew! What a long way I have come in just a week, I don’t mean to brag but it’s kind of a big deal 🙂
Now, if only the damn weather up here would cooperate just a little more. C’mon Boston, 54 for a high today. Really?!!? Sheesh. Change it. FAST!
For those of you still keeping up with this, thank you. The support means the world!
