Quad Father’s Day

Father’s Day was just about 2 weeks ago now so I know I’m late but I wanted to talk about my greatest gift. I didn’t actually receive it on Father’s Day but on the Thursday before.

The Bittersweet Walk

The Sweet On the one hand I am thankful that I have the ability to take him out on walks by myself, that in itself is a big deal under the circumstances.

Iphone Lover

A big chunk of my morning has been devoted to figuring out and paying these medical bills. This is not just a SCI thing, anybody who has had a major medical event knows that medical/insurance billing makes no sense.
