Well, the first thing was learning balance again because I had absolutely no, like my core was so weak from being in the hospital bed, and building my core back, learning balance. My first therapist, she pushed me around. I got tired of it, so I pushed her back, said, “don’t push me.” But that, and when I would get transferred from my chair to a couch or floor transfers, being able to get from the chair to the floors, that’s a huge milestone. That’s being able to be independent than have to have somebody come and help you up. You could do it on your own, if you fell out of the chair, or you have to get something off the floor, getting dressed in the chair, that’s a lot of stuff from day one. You have somebody’s helping you put your underwear on, you know, figuring out how to do it by yourself, that’s a milestone.
