I wish I could do the "Mommy will kiss it and make it better" thing, b... Read more
I'm getting Stronger
This morning after my walk, I showered, dressed and did my hair all by myself. It took a lot of patience, huffing and puffing, and blowing out the pain messages, but I did it.
Now I am all ready for my care giver to come take me to see t... Read more

Can I Leave Yet???
