I'm trying to respond to two challenges here--The Thursday TITC, "Good and Bad" & May's PaD theme, "The Other Side." We'll see if it works.
Regarding Thursday's Challenge theme of "Good and Bad," this image shows my sweetie taking a nap in his chair. Parked in front of him is a walker. Now, it is NOT good that Eddie needs such an assistive device--even temporarily --but it IS good that he's found this walker allows him to walk relatively pain-free. Without it he would be using my extra mobility scooter full-time. He would not be driving, nor would he be able to go to his office. By the way, Ed is mostly retired but loves to spend his days in his office so it is a great comfort for him to be there. As regular readers know, this has has been a tough week for my sweetie. Excruciating back pain put him in the hospital for two nights, and he continues to move with difficulty.
That brings me to the subject of May's PaD theme, "The Other Side." Here is a man who has always been strong and healthy, whose last hospitalization was in 1942, and whose daily three mile walk was as predictable as the sun rising in the east. At least for now, he is on the Other Side of strength and good health. But we trust he is only visiting this "Other Side" temporarily, and will soon return to the place where he belongs.
