I was going to write that you shouldn’t get too excited about my being able to get up from my scooter. It was a first for me, and I was excited about it, but I realized that the seat of the scooter sits up higher than a normal chair, and that made a difference. However, today there was a difference. I was on my bed doing my exercises, and when I finished, I tried to stand. Up I went, to my total amazement. Now the bed is a couple of inches higher than most chairs, but is lower than the scooter. I just keep trying.
Just for fun -
