rone: (invincirone)

Today marks one year since i came home after ending up in the hospital with GBS.  At that time, I couldn't stand or sit up in bed.  I couldn't lift my arms farther than 45°.  These days, i can lift my arms almost straight up, and i'm able to go up and down stairs.  We got rid of my wheelchair in December, and i stopped using my walker all the time in April.

 

Memo was with me almost every day at the Walnut Creek nursing home.  He's two years old now.

Despite not being compelled by law to do so, Renew Financial extended my benefits for four months once i got sick, and held my job for the 53 weeks I was out sick, and i have been eagerly working for them since February, because it's rare to find a company that displays this sort of values.

 

So far this year, we've seen Sigur Rós, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Midnight Oil in concert.  So, really, things this year has been quite good so far, despite the nationally-induced global calamity that needs not be named.

Kip was limping around the other day, so Kim took him to the vet, who shaved his paw in order to examine it (he was fine).
