WEDNESDAY — back to school

[written Wed. evening]

I made scant progress getting approval for physical therapy.  Maybe tomorrow.  Maybe never.

Most of the rest of the day was uneventful and I didn’t do all the exercises I should have, but at 4:45 we drove to the University so that I could participate in the final presentations of Intermediate GIS.   I was scheduled to teach this class and had signed in many of the students from previous classes – before I went missing.  My replacement kindly invited me to return.  It was nice to be there and see a few familiar faces and to view their projects.

Although I can walk I didn’t want to sit in the classroom chairs as they would be hard for me to get up from, so, I followed my walker into the building and up the elevator.  I discovered two problems.  The seat of the walker is a fine idea poorly executed.  Comfortable it isn’t – even with a cushion.  And the second problem is that I no longer have the built-in padding I’d learned to live with. But this is a condition I do want to learn to live with so I’m not complaining – just stating a fact. Did I mention it was a 90 minute class?

It was also my first time back on campus since before Thanksgiving.
