Hi Everyone!!
I know it's been a long time since I was here. So much has happened in the last several months. Where do I begin? Ok.. here it goes.
Last June I had an accident. I fell (if that's what you can call it)down a flight of cement stairs. I was at the top and my sandle caught on the back of the stair and I flew out of my shoes. I missed 7 of the 9 stairs. I don't recommend flying without wings. It doesn't work very well....any way I have been laid up since then. I was a mess and didn't know why. I was told what happened. I don't remember a thing. I had a severe concussion which has caused short term memory loss as well as other injuries. I looked like I fought ROCKY and lost. I was very lucky though. The dr. in the hospital told me that I was very lucky to be alive. I am actually getting around better now and I can actually type for a while without hurting or getting tired. YAY!!!!! I'm in physical therapy 3x a week and doing 19 exercises at home 3x daily. What a work out!!! I'm slowly getting my mobility back. I'm planning on a full recovery.. however my dr.s aren't as positive as I am. That's alright I will show them. I'm constantly playing Josh. The song I play a lot of is Don't Give Up(You Are Loved). It gives me the encouragement to keep moving forward when I'm feeling a bit defeated and frustrated. I have about another 6 months of therapy.. at least that's what I'm told.
I guess I'll say good bye for now I'm going to go out and enjoy the 97 degree weather for a while.

Have a Joshful day,
Shirley
