    Good vibes sent. Watch for the UPS truck

    Good vibes from me too!

    My good news is that today I sat on the floor for the first time in over 3 months and was able to get up!

    Me either. I tried it recently and had to have help.

    Great news CA and JLuvs.

    Lil Bit, sending you good wishes on the job coming through.

    WEll if we are talking job front news, I've been asked to do training for both the new volunteers and customer service training for the people that deal with the public. I love being able to tell people what to do. Um, I mean, training them.

    Thank you so much Gut, mrd, and famita!

    Today.. was doing stairs like a normal person. One foot on one step with the other leading up. Not having to do one single step at a time!! Going down's still a different story. But I'm walking faster with my walker and walking more without it for shorter distances!!

    My friend came out of surgery and is doing well! Her 16 year old son called me from her phone to tell me that she'll be moved to a room in a few hours. I said I'd stop by this afternoon to see her. Her mother said she might not know who I am but she's sure she'd love to see me. She is supposed to be released tomorrow. Thanks all!

    I don't go down stairs like a normal person. I have a fear of stairs. I'm getting over it living here as everything is on multi levels and has stairs. But I can usually go up fine. It's coming down that I have problems because I have a fear of falling down stairs and coming down I can see just how far I fall. If I'm on a staircase, people behind me get exasperated as I'm really slow and I come down one step at a time.

    But I think your progress is great. Soon, you will no longer look like me coming down stairs.

    And big congrats on walking without the walker! Keep up the great work.
