Life Lessons – on your back
February 5, 2008
- Good wives instinctively know the difference between being gracious, encouraging with “Oooh, it’s okay Honey, push through it,” and encouraging with “Oh, suck it up you Weenie.” Steph is a good wife.
- Gracious friends who haven’t been around you all day and are willing to do a whole lot for you are very appreciated.
- It’s very humbling when your 1 year old can walk better than you can.
- You use your back for everything.
- It’s a hard thing to explain to young children why Daddy can’t play right now like he used to.
- I’ll sum up what could be many separate entries: it’s a lot harder to use the restroom when you’re back is not functioning properly.
- The floor is not the most comfortable place to sleep.
- The modern American life is not designed for people who can’t walk.
- For the love of all that is fair and normal and just, regardless of your health, I implore you to spend a little time exercising your core muscles (stomach, lower back, butt, thighs). I have learned these muscles control how you do just about everything.
I can only imagine I will have more Life Lessons after physical therapy today.
