spin your partner, do si do, round again and don't be slow

I've accomplished two diametrically opposite things this month. Seventeen months into this particular flare, I finally hit the point where I can start physical therapy, and I did. I also finally caved to reality and picked up a wheelchair. It's not as depressing as I thought it would be. I'm excited to be able to go on day trips with the spouse and kiddos again. My choices have been: A) Spend six hours hobbling around on canes and spend the next few weeks pretty much in bed or B) Stay home. Now I have choice C: Sit my ass down and go for a ride, see the sights with the small fry, and still be functional (ha ha) the next day. Life is good.


  1. Enjoy your new wheels, and time well spent with family!

  2. I am glad it is working for you. you always look on the bright side. I am hoping we will see more of your smiling face again now!

  3. You are such an inspiration, Sarah! My canes arrived today and I greeted them with thankfulness rather than sadness ... and have found them useful for things like prodding children and such.
