ANOTHER MILESTONE

23 June 2003

The milestones just keep rolling along.

Today I took another shower and decided to try actually putting on clothes. All the way. I don't have a lot of overly big shirts that are easy to get into, but I do have enough that perhaps my days of under-the-shirt binding are over.

The warm water of the shower felt SO good. I am eager to get the clearance from the doctor to start exercising in a warm pool, as Nancy advised me. I found that the longer I stood under the warm water, the "looser" my arm felt. I could have stayed a lot longer, but the physician's assistant had warned me not to take long showers, and to get right back in the immobilizer. So I'm bound up again, but I once again definitely feel I am moving forward in the right direction.

Walt went off to the opera today and I decided to take doctor's advice and keep my foot elevated. I never have a day when there isn't something to do. That's not to say that there isn't a lot to do around here, but mostly stuff that I can't do yet. And I've been told to keep the leg elevated as much as possible, so I just decided to veg out for the day

And veg out I did.

I was going to spend the day reading Harry Potter, but while I was fixing lunch, I was watching "About a Boy," the Hugh Grant movie. Hadn't seen it before and it was cute.

That was followed by "The Bourne Identity," which, near as I could figure, was a 2 hour chase scene (how Ned must have loved it). Unfortunately, before the climax, I fell asleep, so I still don't know what happened or how it ended. All I know is that Matt Damon was being chased by everybody everywhere. Period.

I woke up as it was ending, very angry that I'd missed finding out what it was all about.

But right after that, "The Laramie Project" came on. I wrote about this play a few months ago and the effect that it had on me--the intensity of the emotion that gripped the country while Matthew Shepard clung to life was the push that I needed to join PFLAG and not just sit home and write letters any more.

In that recent journal entry, I wrote about the furor that has followed this play around the country and how the furor itself is justification for the play's existence.

As good, and as powerful as the play is, the HBO movie is that much better. It has an unsung all-star cast and is riveting.

When "Laramie Project" was over, I caught the last of "Ghost."   The previous 3 movies were good, and ditto for this movie.

So that's been my day today. Just lazing about in the recliner, bowl of cherries in my lap, watching movie after movie. I'd feel like a real slug, except that I know it's the best thing I can do--today--for my knee. Maybe another day or two of this and I'll actually be able to climb on that exercise bike!

QUOTE OF THE DAY
