"...the great news is that I bought the walker at Costco,
assembled it, and just went for my first walk in 2+ years...three
driveways down to the mailboxes and back, using the sidewalk.....So,
it is a restful evening for me!
Thank you for your loving
encouragement. I would never have done this without it...
for you. Yeah for me. I cried when I got to the mailboxes because I
haven't been out in so, so long, and it is such a beautiful
afternoon....I am so joyful. Thanks!!!!!!"
