Funny the things, like running the vac, how can that make me happy? It isn't about operating the machine or picking up dirt, it is about having control of when the task gets done. Of course picking up dirt and seeing it is gone has always been a rather nice experience for me.
I can walk with my cane now in the house, from room to room, I can cook, and manage a few more everyday things than I could a week ago.

The therapists were talking about how movies and TV always have the cane wrong.
