Current situation: One month after Leaving Rehab.

It has been just over one months since leaving Aspen Ridge. My family and I now live in downtown Salt Lake and actually enjoyed it. It's 3 blocks from work and I have visited there many times. Physical therapy is three times a week and quite grueling. I've been trying to prove I'm completely independent by getting everywhere by wheelchair and light rail (TRAX). It usually takes me four hours to go to my physical therapy sessions three times a week. That's 12 hours a week. When I get there after spending about an hour and 15 minutes wheeling myself up hills and through long corridors of hospitals I'm exhausted. And then I'm not very useful as far as doing the physical therapy activities themselves. I'm going to have a serious talk with my case manager Spencer about doing things differently. I need assistance in getting to and from the hospital . Either I can drive or get there by taxi or whatever, but this current method is not going to work; plus I can't afford to take 12 hours a week away from work just to do physical therapy. I am almost out of sick leave and I cannot afford that pay cut. So yes we will have a serious talk .

Selling our home. All our preparations are going well and we have a painter there painting the main floor and other areas and it looks beautiful. My wife choose a paint color that just looks wonderful and I think the new owners will love it. We have a storage unit and have moved our first 6 Pickup loads over. I hope by the end of the month to have the house ready to list.

We haven't found a temporary or long-term home for our cat. We are kind of thinking that maybe out of fairness if someone does want to take our cat, let them take her completely and not asked for her back. If they bond with her, it's not fair to ask for her back . So if you are interested, Mystic or Golden Eyes would make a great new addition to your home.

Well those are the basics. I will probably have more later but I haven't put anything new for some time so I thought I'd better add something for those of you who do check out my blog. Signing off for now.

As always,
David
