PT Rehab: the year in review… February 21, 2014

just some random musings, and TGIF!!!
Mike completed PT Rehab on Wed, we sorta “graduated” and were cut loose by Jim, his PT. Now begins the rest of our lives!
Mike with Peter, Aurora St. Lukes, Feb. 2013, and Mike with Jim, Home, Feb. 2014! Wow, what a year!!!!
Took Mike out to Lowe’s Home Improvement the other day, place wasn’t very busy, so we felt comfortable mingling with people, hardly saw anyone.
…Mike wore his mask, and got around with a cart. It was something watching peoples expressions, as we passed by, employees would nod at us.
As we came back up to the front of the store, headed for the nearest checkout, we were called over to the Service Desk. They could see Mike was getting a little tired from the walking…they wanted to get us out without any hassle or wait, and fewer steps. As we checked out, the two clerks asked if he was recently recovered from an illness, so we told them about his transplant. They both gave us HUGE best wishes and said they were happy to hear he had a second chance at life again. It really made me feel good to know there are still decent people in the world who don’t judge based on looks alone…
I can't tell you how many times I heard the phrase; "..but, you don't look sick."  Nothing is more annoying than people assuming you are not sick because they don't understand that you can be truly sick even when you may not look sick.  How many of you have heard the same annoying phrase????????
Wishing you a beautiful weekend!
