I've just finished my first day of three 'real' meals since Feb. And they were delicious! A salmon fillet tonight as good as any I've ever eaten. I am really impressed with the food here, and three meals provide three more events that I can enjoy during the day. What a big change in my life here very suddenly.
I'm almost ready to post pictures of my meals as some of you do. Those have been a real inspiration to me the last few weeks as I got closer to real meals. And I'm really looking forward to savouring every morsel once we get home! I will never take good food for granted again.
As for the wheelchair, it really is magic - for the price it should be! You steer it with a joystick, which also controls acceleration and braking. But it's not easy at first to drive in a straight line. The curves on the other hand, are great. It will turn a complete circle on itself very easily.
For an hour I was fitted to the chair and learned about the controls. Then I tried driving it, which is pretty intuitive except for those straight lines in narrow corridors. And then we were allowed an hour on our own. Sadly, the chair had to go back with the sales rep, but I expect to get one on Monday that will keep for several weeks.
For those of you wondering, it really doesn't go very fast, but it gives you a lot of independence compared to being reliant on someone to push you.
A good day today, my closest cousin visited, I had those three great meals, and this evening got good pictures of a Hummingbird Moth with my cell phone camera. I only wish I could post them to show you.
