Today was a good day.  I’m getting adjusted to my house and the different steps and ways to getting things done.  Learning as I go from this new normal.  The one thing I find difficult is doing transfers.  At the hospital all the surfaces I transferred to were mostly the same height as my wheel chair.  At my house a lot of the surfaces are lower or higher than the chair so I have to get use these uneven transfers.  I know in time it will get better.  Every morning there are nurses and therapist coming in and out of the house working with me.  I have to administer an IV for an infection in my back until mid January.  Today a few of my aunts came down from Mass.  It was great to sit with them and chat.  I was able to go to the YMCA today with the help of my friend Jake who picked me up from my house.  Having friends that help me with weights at the gym is such a blessing; it makes lifting so much easier.  I want to thank my parents and all of our family friends who sacrificed there time off to waking up early and helping to renovate my house.  I am so grateful to my Dad who put every free moment for two months into getting the house ready for me.  I can only imagine how exhausting that must have been.  Dad, I love you and am forever grateful for everything you’ve done for me.   God has certainly blessed me with great parents.  I take everyday as it comes ready to put in the work to better myself physically and spiritually.  It’s crazy how the days are starting to fly by especially when it starts getting dark at four.  I’ve come a long way since September 29th.  I’m anxious to see where I’ll be a in three to six months.  I pray that my back heals and the drain incisions close with no fluid build up.  As the days go by I learn, adapt, and move forward with a positive attitude ready to do what ever it takes to walk again.  It’s a long road to recovery but each day brings new trials to conquer.  Eager to do the best I can.  I know in my heart that I’m going to be okay.  God is in control.  If God is for me who can be against me?  He will uphold me with his righteous right hand!             


            I ask for continued prayers of healing and strength.  I believe in the power of prayer and what it can do.  Thank you all and God bless!!
