Just sitting around

well this was fun! As we were wrapping up my training session on tuesday, I asked my trainer if I could sit up for a minute. Since I’m on a mat, what’s the worst that can happen? I fall over onto a padded surface. So we gave it a shot.

Julie help pull me into a sitting position, and my trainer supported me from behind while I concentrated on holding my head up with a proud chest, i.e. sitting with good posture. After a moment, my trainer startled me by telling me she wasn’t holding on to me. After another attempt, i sat by myself for a full 8 minutes until we ran out of class time.

Once I acquire some technology to lift me out of the wheelchair when I am outdoors, I look forward to just sitting on the grass in the park!
