One small step for man
“Ugh,” I groan as I drop the block from my rather tenuous left-handed grasp. I’ve been struggling for the better part of the hour-long therapy session with a weak hand that won’t cooperate.

Four weeks or four years?
It’s absolutely crazy to think that the last blog post I wrote was right before s$!t hit the fan in mid-March.
