Recovery Memories

Sometimes, the journey to reach independence requires different perspectives that include the joys of your life. Five years ago, my daughter encouraged me to start moving and work on cardio by asking me to wheel beside her as she biked around the block. I was uncertain with the request until she decided that we’d be dragons together. She was the Bike Dragon who lead the path, I was the Wheelchair Dragon and my mother was the Walking Dragon who supervised us and was there wherever we needed her. 

With the perspective of being dragons of different types and of three generations, workout in a wheelchair became fun and I was motivated to try daily in the Summer weather. It was a great gift for me to have a taste of independence in the wheelchair with the care of my favorite nurses, my daughter and mother.
