I probably won’t crochet today or tomorrow. I have a medical appointment tomorrow. I’ll use my time and energy today to prepare for that. I am so thankful for Access A Ride, NYC Para Transit Service. A van comes and takes me to any destination of my choice within NYC. I pay $4.50 round trip fare. I have used the service for about seven years. I even used it when I was going out to work everyday.
Access A Ride was a big factor in allowing me to work outside my home with my mobility issues as long as I did. I am also thankful for Pastor M. He pushes my wheelchair and accompanies me to all my medical appointments. I look forward to the day when I’ll be able to go out without the wheelchair. Inside my home, I walk with crutches or my walker. But even with crutches I can’t walk far or stand up for long periods of time. But,I I’m in less pain than I was a year ago. And I haven’t been in the hospital since July 2010.
I have much to be happy about. By Wednesday, I should be ready to pick up my crochet hook again.
