You also have this syndrome
I remember when we walked up the main street in Halle you were mentioning what kind of bird we could listen to
- yeah, I always wonder about our gentle, beautiful Feathered Friends making our shitty little planet an (even more) enjoyable place to be...
The fellow over there I diagnosed as being the common Blackcap
, a rather common songbird known as the 'Zwartkop' in my language, which happens to be the exact translation of its name in English. A very common, though hard to recognize (only on its song), member of the extensive Sylvia
family of songbirds.
BTW, both of us are happy volunteers at our local Bird protection society
I'm interested to see your armmuscles now
Getting bigger-and-bigger. HIS too, btw.
Uhm, in my case, I'd say Stosur-esque.
Not that it helped both of them either way lately...
but it sure does help US.
I think it's pretty normal to go through such a stage. All you can do is to be there for him
- yeah, indeed, and I think it's going well so far. I have to stop him at doing wonky dangerous things on the cruches at times (like getting into the shower whereas I think pushing him into there in the wheelchair might just be a better idea
) but so far, all's well. He's been in a rather good mood the past couple of days, and that might just well be one of the things I like about him most of all - his attitude. Whatever the shit, make the best out of it!
How about your plans for the South of France? When were you scheduled to go there?
August 10th, so in some two weeks of time...
I will have to make arrangements to get him to Rotterdam Airport, get him a wheelchair and a proper seat on the flight, and get him a wheelchair and crutches once we've landed at Montpellier Airport just the same. So, ehm, quite a bit of work, and quite a bit of challenge
to be honest, to get all of that done.
But ehm - I *like* challenges. And with a bit of help from his parents who live over there most of the time, I think "YES, WE CAN!"
How can he be down when he has you?
I'm sure you can figure out a way to cheer him up.
you're too kind, Sean.
But I try my best, what more can one do?
He had a pretty sunny disposition today, by the way. The outlooks are fine, even as much as it TRULY SUCKS to be in a wheelchair.
At least his recovery has been fine the past days. A positive outlook, a positive mind - it helps.
