i took a bath last night (sponge w/ detach shower head), and i am navigating stairs on my own now! i even studied for a few hours today. tomorrow i will try going outside and visiting my house for some stuff. next week i try to get back to work and school.
many thanks to mari who is watching maxx in my absence, and keeps bringing me stuff from home. and to dee for care package. and to M for the moral support he's been giving me. and to mom for taking care of me entirely (i hate being this dependent).
