Walking On My Own.

It’s been about a month since I started walking without any physical support such as
clutches or a cane. I still limp heavily. Climbing up stairs or just 15 minute-walk had
never been so tough until I got this disfigured right leg.
Two good things have come out of it, though. A, I found that it is a blessing to be able
to use both of my hands while standing. B, how grateful it is to have a devoted, loveable and considerate wife who thinks of me anytime and doesn’t mind at all to go out of her
way to help me. I owe my wife quite a lot.

Rehabilitation Hospital

One of my room mates once said, “This place is like a zoo.” If you were staying in the
same hospital, you could echo his description of the hospital where screaming, howling,
bizarre voices travel through hallways. Sometimes you could be startled at seeing someone
peeking into your room on all fours in the middle of the night.
With high proportion of patients having dementia, weird behaviors or peculiar voices are
matters of daily practice there.
Friends who visited me would say, “Sleep well, for your quick recovery!” But that was
the most difficult task for patients sharing a room with those who had regressive changes
in their brain. I sometimes wondered whether hospitalization really improves my health or
not.
