Oh what a wonderful day! Today I had four classes and Sean Foley got to go to all of them with me. I learned abut all the prescriptions I am on, how to transfer from my chair to a bed using nothing but a small transfer board, talked to a psychologist and how to work my way around a kitchen! The psychologist was so impressed with my positive outlook, and my physical therapists were really proud of my quick progress. It was so fun having Sean with me, and watching him smile every time I did something well. Thanks for your support sweetheart! I didn't feel so great afterwards, but they said that is totally normal and it will get much better with time. Can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store!
