I was at the Stock Show and thought about the tag line for tonight because, I, in fact, moved to the east side. This is the very first blog from the east side. Almost exciting isn’t it?
Moving on. Today was my first experience back into society since the change. FYI: I am calling my accident as the “change,” because it was more of a change in my life than anything else. Being back in society and looking at everyone’s butts and backs was certianly a change from looking at the tops of everyone’s heads. I thought that I would feel odd about the chair in public. But fortunately I didn’t feel any discomfort at all.
The rodeo itself was fun. I had been to a rodeo before, back in my Flagstaff days. The best part is that I only heard one country song. The rodeo started with this light and fireworks show that was mostly lame, but was also psychedelic at the same time. Don’t ask.
The most interesting part of the day was the bicycle I was hooked up to. To make a long story story short: electrodes are placed on my leg muscles and electricity moves my legs. I got mom to video it.
Before I forget, I have a new room on the east side and when I got back from the east side the nurses had moved my stuff already. And in classic mom fashion, she began to nest. For those who don’t know what I mean, she began to put the place together. She was organizing here and putting things here. Moms: God bless ’em.
The last bit of news, and I am done. I heard from Erika today that she will be able to spend a little bit more time here in Colorado and still go to school. She is doing a distance-learning program, and it will allow her to be here with me more. Hooray. I’m not sure on the how it all works, but having her with me is awesome news.
Have a great weekend all.
